In 1941, Vic Whittlesea was a business man that owned coin stores in the Reno and Las Vegas areas. He won a taxicab medallion in a poker game in Las Vegas and hired his best friend to drive a taxicab for him and started Whittlesea Blue Cab Company. He learned the business from the ground up and worked hard with his employees who all respected his ability.
Five years later, Whittlesea branched out to Reno with his transportation business. As the business developed, he had an opportunity to expand into Sacramento California, where he opened a transportation business and a taxicab firm. He retained the Sacramento business until 1950, building it up, and then sold it which enabled him to concentrate more on building the transportation business in Las Vegas and Reno.
Vic Whittlesea brought the first radio-contacted taxicabs to the state of Nevada. He started out small but eventually his fleet expanded to over 200 taxicabs serving the people of both Las Vegas and Reno. In 1972, Vic's niece, Paula Bell, and her husband Horace Bell, acquired the business. Horace and Paula expanded the business further and in 1978, they began offering buses and limousines for transportation services. The family business continues today with the passing of ownership to their children and grandchildren.
Today, there are 7 company subsidiaries with the Whittlesea-Bell brand. They are Bell Trans, Whittlesea Blue Cab Company, Henderson Taxi, and Presidential Limousine located in Las Vegas and Airport Min-Bus, Bell Limo and Whittlesea Checker Taxi Inc, located in Reno. Within all the companies, there are currently over 1,100 vehicles in operation. So keep us in mind for all of your transportation needs.
Vic was also a member of the Board of Directors of the American Taxi Association for 10 years.
