On numerous occasions Mike would pick up some of the Panamanian and Ngobe people walking to the grocery, to their jobs, to their homes, wherever. Most times they were carrying heavy gas tanks, children, heavy tools, etc. He would take them to their homes and they were very appreciative always asking, “How much money”?Mike would never accept any money. When he found himself doing this more and more he told me he was going to start a pickup service in the mornings. Most of the people live off the main road and would have to walk.20 a 60 minutes to the bus stop. Panama does have a good bus transportation system but they do not get off off paved roads. So that is how Mike’s TAXI service started.
