[edit] The site

Gothamcab.com is a promotional page for the taxi service in Gotham.

SAFETY, SECURITY AND EFFICENCY ARE OUR MISSION.

At Gotham Cab, we seek to provide you with personalized service.

About Us: Gotham Cab was established on Valentine’s Day, 1995 on Karl and Mary Breitup’s 10th wedding anniversary. We started with three cabs. Since then we’ve grown, adding more cabs and more drivers. It’s a family company.

Gotham Cab is now offering free taxi service within The Narrows and the Gotham City Rail destruction zone. Simply present your transfer ticket to any Gotham Cab. If you need pick-up, give us a call.

Community Action - Gotham Cab was a sponsor of last year’s PAL Picnic. The Police Athletic League is a free youth program featuring sports, education and trips for children age 6 to 18

- Gotham Cab provides transportation for the Gotham Fire Department/Shriners week long summer camp for burn scarred children.

- Gotham Cab is a proud sponsor of the West Harlow Tigers. Support soccer in Gotham!

Under the new requirement by Gotham City Council, all recovered properties found onboard taxis will be kept for up to three months. If unclaimed within three months, these items will be donated to a local charity.

[edit] Map

Clicking on "Gotham City Rail destruction zone" (a reference to Batman Begins) brings up a map showing the destroyed area in red. This map would later be used for Whysoserious.com/Theperfectgetaway.

After the Whysoserious.com/Overture countdown had ended at 10PM EDT, Gothamcab.com was "Jokerized" along with nearly every other page in the game.

[edit] November 23, 2007

Upon calling the taxi service number (1-877-530-2227), an automatic message advertises the ability of Gotham Cabs to take you to all parts of town, then the participant will be told that all lines are busy, and then prompted to either leave a message or enter an administrator PIN number. Punching in #6773 (Lt. Karl Breitup's badge number found on Wearetheanswer.org) will reveal an audio message (listen at youtube):

Don't worry about all this stuff in the papers. Now I'm told Garcetti is handling it. Rossi called me this morning. He's got more work. Double the payment. Sounds good, right? If anyone comes to us with questions, we've just got to keep our mouths shut. Understand?

Karl Breitup is one of the founding members of the Gotham Cab Company, which was established on his 10th wedding anniversary (February 14th, 1995 or 2/14/1995)..


[edit] November 30, 2007

Calling the taxi service number results in the discovery of a second audio message (listen to both messages on ZShare):

Hey Breitup, Listen up, you and your partner should come by Betty's House of Pies, come on our regular time on Saturday. The waitress will have that special just for you...know what I mean?


[edit] March 26, 2008

A new audio message is left on the Gothamcab.com voicemail system. announcing the suspension of service. (Zshare download link for the entire updated message)

(Welcome message, possibly recorded by Mary Breitup)

Hello. This is Gotham Cab. We...shut down and...no, we're not talking to the press. I can't thank all of you enough for the contributions to our trial fund. Goodbye and...God bless.

(Voicemail message, possibly left by Jeremiah Steinburger, the Breitup family lawyer)

Yeah, Mary. I'm gonna be filin' the motion that seizure of assets places undue burden on the family. But uh, as I told you at our meeting yesterday, I...don't expect much to come of it. But I promise, we won't give up. Call me anytime.

A new message is left on the Gothamcab.com voicemail system.

Yeah, hey Mary, this is Gotham Johnny. Look, eh, the guys passed the hat around again - you know, for you and the kids. The man was a stand-up guy. We're all tryin' to do right by him, 'kay? So call me and we'll set somethin' up, huh?

[edit] April 13, 2008

A new message. Download the last two voicemails from Zshare here.

Hey Mary, it's me. Okay, so - we're all set for 2pm at Rossi's. Uhh, look. Don't be so proud, okay? Eh...if ya don't want the money for yours own, take it for the kids. We honor our debts, ya know?

Later that day, there was a violent hostage situation at Rossi's where Mary Breitup was inexplicably killed. A second victim, Jonny Marinotti (who may be "Gotham Johnny"), is reportedly in critical condition.

[edit] Service suspended

On March 26, the new issue of The Gotham Times reports that Gotham Cabs is being shut down due to Karl Breitup's death, as well as the allegations that the company had mob-connections.


An update is also included on Gothamcab.com:

Service Suspended.

Gotham Cab wants to thank our customers for your many years of business. It was a pleasure assisting you with your transportation needs.

A new update is added to the end of the note about service suspension:

We are currently working with the city to restore our service to the streets of Gotham. Future updates will be posted to this website, or call us for current status.
