All you have to do to get this achievement, is roam around in a taxi cab until you get a phone call from them, it will tell you where to go, pick em up, and take them to the location. Here's a video tut, I used.

I got the call for the private fare while driving my normal car. You don't need to be driving a taxi, just buy the business and the call will come eventually.

I wasn't even driving when I got the call, I had just called the cab company for a normal cab for myself though.

So I bought the taxi company but I was in the middle of doing something when I got the call and wasn't able to make it to the fare, will they call back later or is it once per game

Be careful not to click the left analogue stick when doing this. It starts a normal fare and cancels the private fare. Not had another call since either.

I was busy when the guy called me the first time but accepted anyway, then when I was about to do it the mission disappeared and the guy said he should not have called me and he could handle it himself, now I'm terrified that he will never call me again. For the love of God tell me he will.

Goddamnit!! After I save my game I usually just go somewhere and kill myself for the lulz, but just when I was about to jump off a small cliff, the Taxi boss called (and I answered) and started to talk about his request. The sad thing was that I suddenly tripped and F The Ragdoll fell down. I did survive my fall, but it interupted the call!! I tried to call back with no response, so I just fired an RPG into my feet and turned off the console.

Just wait till you get a phone call from the company after you purchase it. Private fares have qualifications you have to fulfill. The first I got was the guy who's nauseous. Just take your sweet time, drive slow and don't crash and you get the bonuses. As soon as you drop your fare off you get the achievement.

I got the call, picked up the guy and took him where he wanted to go, then I had to help him fight the lost but he got shot and no cheevo popped. Then the cab company texted me and said "don't think he will be coming back."
Should I have got the achievement or does it have to be successful?

From what I can tell the "Private Fare" appears to be a specific mission. I missed the first call and used the left stick click thinking that I was doing it right, but found out that was wrong after not getting the achievo just driving that person to where they wanted to go. After awhile I got a call from the cab company and they put a mission on my map with the letter P. I went and picked up the lady and the story that happened in the mission fit the "Love and War" theme very much. I got the achievo when it ended.
Check to see if you have a P on your map for a mission if you are waiting for a phone call. Maybe you completed the phone call and didn't realize this was added to your map.

So I buy the cab company, get in a taxi, drive around, take a few fares out of boredom, buy the Hookies restaurant, get shot at by bikers, start shooting back, the guy calls, I accept, then the cops show up and shoot me in the face with a shot gun point blank.. no sign of the P I need & been driving around forever waiting for the damn call..

Got this while I was cruising around in my regular car w/Franklin. Pretty sure my private fare was Derrick McReary and I helped him get away from a jewelry store robbery.

Do you buy the Cab company on the internet? It's not on my map to purchase.
|Comment #36 by Sterner Stuff|
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 @ 03:54:49 AM
I purchased the property, did a couple of normal taxi missions and then started driving around trying to get the private fare type.
I drove around for 5 minutes in the city and never got it, so I got bored and just sat in a random parking lot in my taxi. After 5 minutes of sitting there, he calls me for a private fare.

I was having the same problems as everyone else. I had 13 other saves (saved every 8% or so in case of corrupt files) so I loaded the one that was around 72%, which was before I bought the cab company. I bought the cab company, and continued to sleep until Sunday morning. Got in a car and within about 2 minutes got the call.

It took me about 3 days in real time playing the game before I got the call.
|Comment #43 by molii|
Sunday, January 12, 2014 @ 07:49:43 PM
I had the same problem with the call not coming. I solved in this way: go home, sleep till Monday. As soon as you go out again you get a message from one of your properties. If it's not the taxi company just complete the mission and go back to bed. It took me 3 different missions (I bought almost everything with Franklin) but the 3rd was from the taxi company. I hope it helps.
|Comment #44 by King_Jackalope|
Friday, January 17, 2014 @ 01:31:54 AM
Just got this. I went to an old save game before I bought any properties. ONLY bought cab company. Got call quickly. If it's your only company it helps I think.

I was on a mission when I got the first phone call, so I didn't accept it thinking it would come again. And that's been a week ago. Will I ever get a second call?

Is anyone else still having a problem after having ignored the first call? When I first got it, I was in the middle of a mission, and I've completely beaten the story since then and still no new call.

|Comment #49 by zeka16|
Saturday, March 01, 2014 @ 04:18:26 PM
I got the call but was killed in the meantime so the call ended.
I haven't got a second call but now Franklin still shows one mission to do when I open character selection. When I open the map I see nothing though...
This may the source of the glitch.
