Problems with Taxi again...

Guys, even though the taxi fares has increase so dramatically, I still can't find a cab during peak hours!
And this cabbies always seem to be so engaged and they don't seem to stop even it's empty. The operators is always so busy.
LTA doesn't seem to care...
Hai, what you all suggest to improve this crappy system?

Re: Problems with Taxi again...

Yes it's frustrating. I feel even more frustrated when the taxi puts on the lights yet dont want to pick you up when you flag for it. The least they could do if they dont want any passengers would be to shut off their lights or put "On call" or something. I hate it when I flag an available cab but the cab just ignores me. Seriously pisses me off. Waste my effort trying to flag it down. Zzz..

I think there is no solution, cos taxi drivers are businessmen themselves. They can choose whether to pick you up or not depending on their mood. They earn not by fixed salary but by the fares they collect. So taxi firms cant really do anything about it if they choose to ignore you. Maybe LTA can set up a guideline for cabbies that if they dont wish to pick passengers up, they should shut their lights off. If they dont comply, they may face a suspension of licence or something if people complains about it.

Re: Problems with Taxi again...

I understand your concerns!
I got this one time when this taxi who put on a on call sign and stop beside me when I flag for it. I thought he decided to not take the call since the caller has fly him aeroplane. So I boarded the cab and told him of my destination.

When I reached my destination, he asked me to pay the booking fees, I told him I did not make the call and is the street pickup...He then YELL AT ME FOR FLAGGING HIM DOWN!....and scolded me for standing at the place...this is so crap...I wrote in to LTA, in the end nothing was done.....

U shouldnt have wrote to LTA but instead u should write to Comfort Delgro or the respectively cab companies to complain them..
Probably u should have taken down the cab's plate number..

I think its the cabby's fault for not checking with u whether u are the person who made the booking..

I once had the experience that i booked a cab then in the end the cabby picked up the wrong person & drove off..
