Get to Know the Owner


Based in Claiborne Co, Tennessee--Eric--owner/operator, is a US Air Force Veteran who participated in the 1986--Operation "El Dorado Canyon" against Libya while stationed in England and the Desert Storm/Gulf War Campaign in 1991. He recently retired as an Occupational Therapist Assistant after 27 years and holds an AAS degree in Occupational Therapy, similar to Physical Therapy. He is unofficially retired now but strives to help his local counties and communities with this effort.

Basically this is a small hometown business that extends its services into many counties and in many different capacities.

How the Business Started

Having no Uber or Lyft service available in our rural area--Eric realized there was a real need for a safe and reliable transportation service to help the people in the surrounding counties as well as his local area including: Middlesboro, KY, Cumberland Gap tourists, campers, hikers, and the LMU student community. Hence, Premier Taxi & Transport was born.


Eric holds a Class A CDL, driving 18 wheel big rigs OTR after his retirement from the medical field. He also carries commercial driving liability insurance for the protection of his valued customers.


For security--his vehicle is equipped with a GPS Locator and dash cams that record inside and outside of his vehicle. Surrounding Law Enforcement Agencies have access to these cloud feeds 24/7.


He is proud of his lifetime spotless driving record— No accidents, No tickets of any kind, and No DOT violations. Additionally, he has a 0 CSA score--commercial driving rating, and Never failed a drug screen ever. He also holds a 5 Star Rating on Google since opening day. 


His simple goal is to help the local businesses and communities he serves in any way possible. He serves everyone regardless of their race, religion, nationality, and ethnicity.
