Property information


Gabriola Island is a gulf island close to Nanaimo BC and across the Salish Sea from Vancouver BC. There is ferry and sea plane access to the island. The resident population of 5,000 swells to 10,000 in the spring, summer and early fall. This island has an elementary school, state of the art health care, grocery stores, restaurants and many other amenities.

Premises Details:

This is a home based business.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

At this time one car is used to meet island transportation needs. However, in summer months 2 cars are often needed. As more seniors retire to Gabriola, and more tourists visit the island, the business has the capacity to expand. When seniors stop driving they do not leave Gabriola, so the taxi is a necessary service.

Competition / Market:

There are no other taxi companies allowed on the island. Gabriola Island has one taxi license assigned to the island, with a maximum of 3 cars allowed under that license. There is a small non-profit bus service that runs for limited hours.

Reasons for selling:

Owner retiring.

Trading hours:

Monday to Thursday: 8 am to 6 pm. Friday and Saturday: 6 am to 2 am. Sunday: 6 am to 4:30 pm. Weekday evening shifts, not available in the last year, will soon be restored.

Besides the owner there are 4 drivers who are sub-contractors, not employees. (No employee benefits.)
Years established:
Gabriola Island Taxi was established in 1975 (44 years ago).

Other Information

Support & training:

Furniture / Fixtures value:
$2,000 (CAD) - included in the asking price
