I had the same problem in getting the call for this achievement on both 360 and on the xbox one.

I bought the taxi company and went many hours (real time) playing around as Franklin without getting any call. Now this may have just been a coincidence, but I found if you buy the towing company, I got a call within 30 minutes real time in game for a private fare.

In order to purchase the towing company, you have to complete all of Tonya's towing missions as Franklin. You also need to call her at some point to get the next mission as it won't automatically give you all the missions consecutively.

The first time I was supposed to be a getaway driver for a guy robbing a store, and he told me to wait in an alley with the car, but he got shot by police before even reaching my car! So it was a failed fare. The second customer I got was a passenger wanting to go confront the Lost about his niece. If you get this mission, MAKE SURE YOU GET OUT OUT THE CAR WHEN HE DOES! As soon as the Lost draw their guns, kill them before they kill your passenger! After that he thanks you and advises you leave before the cops show up. Mission complete and achievement unlocked.

These are the only two missions I tried, so I am not sure if you will get something else, but hopefully this will be helpful to you.

Best of luck!
Ch1psFollow this advice! Having not gotten the call for hours on end, seconds after buying the Towing Company (and I mean literally right after I regained control of Franklin) I got a call about a private fare.

Cpt KueselMe too!
After buying the towing company it didn't take a minute for the call. :)
I had to tail the doctor-groom-to-be of a jealous girlfriend visiting another woman.
She killed them both and I got the achievement. :)

MattQuin89Can confirm this. Waited ages, bought the tow shop. Literally 5 seconds later finally got the call.

Whats a Chundylright 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.

Zog ReturnsILeXXuzi, have you done all the towing missions so far? Including the one where you have to call Tonya?
Posted by Zog Returns on 20 Aug 15 at 10:56
LeXXuzYes I have. It's strange, I dont get any calls for help at all. Not even for the other properties like Pitchers, Hookies... On 360 I got calls every couple of ingame days. Also I can't call the cab company for a ride anymore. Line is busy all the time. I dont know what's wrong. :(

HolyMollsterNothing on mine as well. Also collected all toxic waste but achievement says 96%

This version is seriously messed up.

TactiCraigILeXXuzi, I made the same mistake when calling for a ride. It's in your phone book twice, you need to call the other one further down the list.

I can confirm that I got the achievement RIGHT after buying the towing company. Not sure why you haven't got it.

SoulyTheDudedamn I can`t get this one!
I bought the Towing company and got a call from my other property`s manager but not the Cab Co!
I don`t know what to do...cry

LeXXuzIt seems you have to start over. Like me.
I found dozens of threads across multiple forums on the net about people reporting this problem/bug. It seems to happen across all platforms. Also tips like this one or playing online for a fair amount of time doesn't seem to fix it for everyone. Looks like Rockstar have no real clue what's causing this and therefore have no real solution despite starting over. :(

Runner eGirlThat tip about doing Tonya's missions and buying the tow truck company was spot on, got the call from Raul immediately after buying it

ALI900For anyone struggling with Tonya's LAST mission not popping up, read below!

Now you may have tried various methods to no success but I gave one method a chance and it somehow worked? Okay so play as Micheal and go to Franklin's old house, opposite there is the spot where Tonya will spawn, the liquor store.

Try to initiate a conversation with her AS Micheal and you'll randomly be attacked by everyone around you. Get attacked, do not fight back and get killed. Right after you respawn, play as Franklin and there you go! Somehow the point has popped up on the map and you're off to buying the Tow Truck Company!

I know exactly how to fix this, I had the exact same problem. To fix it you have to play ass Michael and go to the exact same spot as Tonya is in front of Franklin's house and you'll be able to talk to her, if it doesn't work keep doing it until someone ( gangsters) kills you while you're talking to her, after you spawn at the hospital it should trigger the mission and there should be a T? on your map.

Anno MundiSo for what it's worth, for me I wasn't even getting the first call thanking me for buying the property. I ended up loading an earlier save (earliest save possible where F had over $200,000) and then I got the first call as soon as I bought the company.

I then killed myself twice, and got the second call instantly. As others have said it's worth saving again at this point as the private fares can be failed quite easily!

If you get the one on the docks, as soon as the chap gets out and starts talking to the lost, just start shooting them all, don't wait for the dialogue to finish.

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.
