How do I know my family is safe with Family Cab?
Family Cab is run by the owner/operators of Perth Designated Drivers (a registered trading name of the company Sober Drivers Pty Ltd, ABN 71 153 703 238).
Perth Designated Drivers has been operational since 2010. Through our commitment to a safe, reliable service where our customers come first, we have built a strong, loyal client base in an industry where most of our competitors have faded away.
We have transported over 10 000 thousand passengers, and never had an accident in the history of the business.
Family Cab is a local, family-run business that benefits from the Perth Designated Driver experience – we know the business, we know the area, and we know kids.
In 2018 we launched FamilyCab in Sydney NSW using a professional sub-contractor network. In 2019 we were able to begin offering service in Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast
