WHO ARE riide?
In 1972 Garth Swan acquired Yellow Cab and Diamond Grey to form United Cabs. His desire for business and being a local to the City of Saskatoon inspired him to continue his passion for transportation and hospitality.
To elevate the companies customer service and the growing demand of Saskatoon’s population, a portion of taxis were transformed into Blueline Taxi in the 1990s as ‘chauffeur service at taxi rates’. With this branch, The United Group was formed.
To go a step further on expanding hospitality, Prestige Car Service bought Quality Cab in 2005 and joined The United Group with the motto ‘the difference between getting there and arriving!’ This partnership combined Blueline Taxi into one luxury service.

In 2018 United Cabs amalgamated with Comfort Cabs and joined the riide brand. riide is an alliance of private hire operators who have come together to develop a global app designed to make the booking of everyday vehicles to local operators seamless, regardless of which city you are in.
The riide app works with the support of partner firms across the world to provide service with the use of just one app wherever you are. All the knowledge, innovation and experience of years in the private hire sector, at your service.
Riide allows you to book a journey in just a few clicks. You can be safe in the knowledge you are dealing with local established companies wherever that may be but through one contact point which is the riide app and network.
They were the first to introduce wheelchair-accessible vehicles and the first to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The head office still remains in the heart of downtown Saskatoon, with local talent operating it’s core with Garth Swan’s family continuing his legacy.
