VANCOUVER, July 2021 – Black Top & Checker Cabs announced its partnership with Spread a Smile BC to provide free oral care for those unable to afford a dental visit and spread smiles across Vancouver one person at a time.

Through this partnership, Black Top & Checker Cabs will offer its taxi service to transport beneficiaries of Spread a Smile BC’s free dental care program. It is estimated that tens of individuals will receive a taxi ride from Vancouver to White Rock (approx. 100 CAD per trip), where dental treatments will be offered to relieve teeth aches and other conditions that cause discomfort as well as impact regular food consumption.

“Black Top sees this as a valuable opportunity for giving back to the community, especially when our business has been built upon local support for the past 83 years,” said Jeff Wan, General Manager, Black Top & Checker Cabs. “Offering support and contributing to the well-being of other city members, also aligns with our vision to being a public figure spearheading positive impact within the taxi industry.”
