Before you can unlock this you will need $200,000 with Franklin

Once far enough into the game after you have stolen the Lost's plane as Trevor the option to purchase the Cab Co will be available to you, now select Franklin as your active character and travel to the upper right hand corner of Los Santos City in 'East Vinewood' where there will be a House icon with ($) inside it in this location.

Travel there and buy the Downtown Cab Co. for $200,000 by walking up to the For Sale sign and press cn_right twice, once the purchase is complete you will immediately get a call from Raul who introduces himself.

Now you need to wait for a second call from Raul which may take some time so try to stick with Franklin and just play missions like normal, after 1-3 real hours you should get the phone call.
xxxDarkRuleRxxx notes that you can speed up the phone call by sleeping 6+ times in Fraklin's safehouse.

In the call Raul asks if you'd like to work on a 'Private Fare' to earn some extra money. Push the cn_A to Accept. After this, you have on your Map a new green Symbol 'P'. Drive to them and pickup the Passenger.

Play the mission out and the achievement is yours.
Sirr LantzalotIve been trying to get this achievement for a while now. I've owned the taxi company for a really long time and I did get the first call from Raul but still haven't gotten the private fare call after many many hours of playing as Franklin. Are the private fare calls known to be glitchy or has anyone else had this problem? I didn't have any problem getting this achievement on 360.

SpilnerIve had quite afew calls actually, how much are you in free roam?
Posted by Spilner on 04 Dec 14 at 18:33
xxxDarkRuleRxxxYou can speed up the time for the 2nd call.

I bought Downtown Cab Co. and drove back to Franklin's Savehouse.
(While driving I received the 1ste call from Raul).

At the Savehouse I went to sleep / saved 6 times in a row.
After that I went outside and received a message with the first payout from Downtown Cab Co.

I got in my car and drove for a few minutes and received the second call.

Spongebuuhad the same problem as Sirr Lantzalot, i never got a call for a private fare. i just bought the tow truck company and received a call from Raul instantly. something was bugged and i had to buy another property to fix it, so it seems.

WAL7T3RWhITEIt's glitched on me too because I've never got a second call from Raul and when I bought the tow truck company I only get a call from pitchers to collect some booze that and Doms last mission won't show up!!

ATR NADGlitched for me as well, also street races after the 2nd one are not showing up (I don't know if it's related)
Posted by ATR NAD on 24 Dec 14 at 19:56

Posted on 02 Jan 15 at 17:31
ElebingOh, I get the second call put the passanger escaped during the trip because i drove to fast. Is it possible to get a new passanger?
Posted by Elebing on 09 Jan 15 at 15:57
SpilnerYou get more than one call.
Posted by Spilner on 09 Jan 15 at 16:04
FuzzyFridayzSeemed glitched for me too until i tried this...Called for a cab, stole it and did a regular fare (press in left stick), about 1-2mins (real time) after completing i got the call. May be a coincidence but worth a try imo. I had not done any other taxi fares before this point, was around the golf club area when he called still driving the taxi.
Posted by FuzzyFridayz on 13 Jan 15 at 02:38
Glitched for me as well. Have tried both buying another property and completing an ordinary taxi fare without any luck.

Dr PurrpleI got a call from the Cab company almost immediately after buying the Towing Impound.

JW DEUCEPlayed the game for a while. I have not gotten one call from any owned businesses to do a job. Something's broken.

DiggyahI was having the same problem as everyone else (not getting any phone calls) I think i have a solution to the problem. I luckily made a couple random game saves before i had purchased any companies. So i went back to one of them and finished all of the tow truck driver missions for Tonya and then bought the tow truck company, then went to buy the cab company. Saved the game approximately 6 times, went outside and drove around for about 30 seconds and got that second phone call for a private fare. completed the fare and got the achievement! smile hopefully people find this before they progress too far into the game and miss this achievement!

Whats a ChundyAlright here's how I did it. Worked twice in a row.

I created a new save and played all the main missions up to "Nervous Ron." This is one of the earlier missions you get when you play as Trevor. Once you complete "Nervous Ron," you can purchase properties. Complete it and create a save here.

After this you have to do about 3/4 more missions as Trevor before you're able to switch back to Franklin. Once you can switch to Franklin again, drive to the cab company and save before buying it.

Once you purchase it get in a car and drive home. On the way home you'll get a call from the cab company and just let the call play out. Sleep at home 6 times then get in Franklins car and drive away (I drove left and it was 5am.) You'll get the call now.

This worked twice in a row for me.

Note: If you get the call to drive a guy to the LS docks, make sure you drop him off and stay in the car until it tells you to get out or he can get shot and you'll fail the fare. If that happens just reload your last save and purchase the cab co again.

CRT JEDIMARKConfirmed! As soon as I completed all the towing missions and purchased the tow business I got the the call from the cab company. I saved before the purchase so I can reload because the tow business is a waste of money.

CRT JEDIMARKBTW thanks to Spongebuu for the suggestion this was my last resort and it worked.

Hanrec2I bought the cab company, and immediately killed myself, on respawning at the hospital the phone rang triggering the private hire. I previously used this solution on an earlier save on the 360 version also. So did it as soon as I purchased the cab company on the One. I havent purchased the towing company yet. Hope it helps.

karlempsonI got the second call about 10 minutes real time after.
Posted by karlempson on 22 May 16 at 18:40
Blastbeat BillKilling myself straight after the first call worked for me aswell. Got the 2nd call immediately after I got out if the hospital.

xWild YakDefinitely something funky with this one.
No matter what I did on my 100% save it wouldn't pop up, many hours played after purchase.
I used 'Whats a Chundy' method (big thanks) and it popped up multiple times. Had to go through multiple times because it was the docks fare every time and I got him killed twice.
The achievement didn't pop up but showed as completed about 12 hours later overnight.

Tm5kBuying the towing company finally prompted the call from Raul for this mission for me.
Posted by Tm5k on 22 Jul 17 at 14:43
Drome17Buying the towing company will give you a property mission for the previous property bought, but if it isn't the cab company it doesn't help. I was able to reset the game by loading up gta online and then immediately switching back to Franklin. This made the map reset but unlocked a couple of missions that were not showing up and fixed the property mission problem for all characters.

NE0 31I tried doin a few taxi mission like other ppl suggested I didn’t get the call of the taxi guy so I went and bought the towing company I didn’t get out of the gate before my phone rang offering me a taxi job.

Socrack" I got a call from the Cab company almost immediately after buying the Towing Impound. "

Exactly the same for me :)
Posted by Socrack on 23 May 19 at 15:07
Gridl0kI couldn't get this to pop, noticed I didn't own the tow truck business, so phoned Tonya, played through her missions and bought it, instantly I started getting business jobs again, and then Raul called. So yeah.

ShepeleI had to start a new game. It was the only solution that worked for me.
Posted by Shepele on 19 Jul 19 at 15:36
Mr BizzarosI, like everyone here, had the same problem. I played and finished the whole game before the call came. One thing I can say is that I was roughly half a kilometre from the Fare location.

LEGENDXKILLAI appreciate the solution and comments to this achievement. I managed to finally unlock this after buying the tow truck business and sleeping over and over.

NoMoreNiceGuybeen waiting for over 8 real life hours (afk), it seems you have to do this before getting 100%
Posted by NoMoreNiceGuy on 15 Apr 20 at 17:34
Scout surgeI had the same problem. multiple save files saved me as I had one prior to purchasing the buisnesses and a bit a research turned up a forum page where they discussed purchasing the tow company after the cab place and that it would trigger the call not long after. Dont know if there is any science to it but it worked for me instantly after nearly 4 hours of my own time trying to trigger the call on my 100% save. Good luck all, be safe, have fun.
Posted by Scout surge on 14 May 20 at 03:46
This just will not work for me. I've spent ages just messing around as Franklin and followed suggestions I've found online and I never get a call about a private fare.
Posted on 30 May 20 at 17:03
SlabbaI saved multiple times in a row in Franklin’s safe house when playing the stock market. Then when I went outside his house I got a message for a taxi fare mission. It happened twice for me. So perhaps give that a go.

Solar KaosJust want to throw my personal experience with this glitched achievement here.

I bought the compagny after the final story mission ( the third choice ) and sitting at 91% completition. It was the third compagny i got and the first one for Franklin. I never get the FIRST call, which is supposed to happen immediately after you buy the compagny. Tried everything, buying the towing compagny, buying others compagnies, going to online, save in a new spot...
Everything and nothing worked.

I ended up loading a save after the 1 heist and after buying downtown cab I got the first call from Raul within seconds. I then killed myself and I got the special fare mission call. My advice don’t do this after the final mission, don’t loose time trying shady things if he don’t call you. Just reload a previous save at the start of the story.

Scenic Route 16Glitched achievement and doesn’t work. Raul never calls.
Posted by Scenic Route 16 on 08 Jan 21 at 11:46
Blue RadiumIf you're having trouble getting Raul to call, try quick saving as Franklin then load the quick save. Doing it for stunt jump save stating and the like, he won't stop pestering me/I must have gotten 100 requests from him I need to turn down at this point. He seems to call after literally every quick save load.
Posted by Blue Radium on 21 Jan 21 at 02:44
^^ didn't work for me.
Posted on 01 May 21 at 03:02
GlacierAnge1I can confirm doing the Tonya method worked for me. Did all Tonya missions (including the ones where you call her), Bought the Taxi Company then the Towing company, went to save at franklins house & got the call it worked.
Posted by GlacierAnge1 on 05 Jun 21 at 15:39
GTAmissions1Can confirm the Tonya method worked in the JP version. Bought the towing company and got the call from Raul less than five minutes later saying "there is a private fare at x location."

LERISBILLSALOVEIf you're struggling to get Raoul to call you to do a private run even after purchasing the tow truck, try switching characters, either Trevor or Michael, and do some stuff with them such as stunt jumps, under the bridge challenges or collecting waste with the yellow sub at the dock. If you don't play as Franklin for a while when you get back to him Raoul will call you. If he doesn't call you even after you've played with the other characters for a while try killing yourself, AS FRANKLIN, of course and you'll respawn at the hospital, he should call you then. Answer the phone and accept the job, complete it to get the achievement. After you complete your 1st private run Raoul will start calling frequently but since you only need to complete one run to unlock the achievement feel free to reject any other jobs he offers. I hope this helps anyone struggling with this as I was to trigger Raoul to call me.
