Best Taxi Driver

Naz Yemane

Some cab drivers like to talk, others ignore you until it’s time to pay the fare. Naz Yemane is definitely in the former category. He speaks eight languages, hosts Radio Eritrea on CKDU, once ran one of the largest cafes in Saskatoon and is now taking an online criminal justice course. Name the topic, he’s ready to talk. He’s also gone out of his way to return lost purses and develop friendships with his customers. Very nice, Naz! Yellow Cab, 420-0000/422-1551

1st runner-up: Kian Ishani, Downtown Cab, 497-8888

2nd runner-up: Elliott Hancock, Casino Taxi, 429-6666/425-6666
