Purchase Downtown Cab Co. and complete a private fare.
You will eventually come to a point in the main storyline where you can begin to purchase property around the city of Los Santos. Owning a piece of property not only allows you to use their services for free, but you will also net a substantial weekly income as well.
For this achievement, you will want to purchase the Downtown Cab Company which is located on Tangerine Street in East Vinewood. This will set you back $200,000 and can only be bought as Franklin. Now, wait until the manager, Raul, calls you. When he does, he will have a private fare ready for you. Accept this job offer and the letter "P" will appear on the world map. Pick up the customer at the "P" icon and drive them to their destination. When you get there, they might need help with a small mission or they will simply get out of the car and pay you right away. Once you are paid, the achievement will unlock.
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.
Hey join my crew and be prepared to take on GTA Online. http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/lossantos_crips_213
We will be organizing heists daily and taking on rival gangs! You can join up-to 5 crews so don't feel like you have to make a decision between our crew and one of your friends because you don't!
This crew is currently open so anyone can join, this means you can invite your friends! Right now the only people that are getting higher ranks are my friends but if you preform good when online comes out you too can be promoted
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..
