    Overall I'm pleased with the hike, give me more benefits.
    That's the positive effect of it. When you really need a cab, you can readily get a cab. It also makes us manage our time better, and move our booties more!

    I still believe this is possible, if everyone cooperates and don't take taxis.

    i dun think so.. taxis companies being public listed will protect their own profits instead drivers' income.

    Yeah have curtailed my taxi taking, but wish buses didn't take SO long.

    I can understand if you take a cab if you have a family. Sometimes the bus' suspension is so broken, whole thing like has its own private earthquake.

    I think most traffic operating companies are more maximising profit rather than service orientated. The funny thing is who the major share holder of these companies ...........
