    Historical Context

    The Denver Omnibus & Cab Company was incorporated in Wyoming in 1909 and was based in Denver, Colorado. It became a Colorado entity later that year.

     

    The company had a number of locations around Denver, including a horse shoeing department at 1447 Cleveland, an electric garage at 1508 Cleveland and the motor garage at 1647 Court Place. The company offered private touring cars in and around Denver and had private automobiles to order.

    In 1915, the company was a defendant in a restraint of trade and unfair competition lawsuit drawn by the Castle Rock Mountain Railway and Park. Denver Omnibus, along with the co-defendants Union Depot Company, the Seeing Denver Car Company and the Denver Tramway Company, were unsuccessfully sued by the CRMR&P for attempting to monopolize the cab industry in Denver by crowding the streets near the railroad depot with available cabs and hacks for disembarking train passengers. Apparently, the CRMR&P had a hard time getting a cab in edgewise outside the depot.
