Nope, because it's all clearly listed on the stickers on the side, and automated in the meter.

I only take a cab when I am already late or almost late, so I take whatever it costs to bring me there :bsmilie:

that's forced circumstances. sometimes, with elderly around, jus wanted to give'em a pleasant journey but get bitten..

the distance to bus stop is another headache... sigh :confused:

Learn to walk more, if you are alone, but with elderly during surcharge period, this means you love them even more cause you willing to pay more for them!!! :bsmilie::bsmilie::bsmilie:

IMO Singapore Taxi charges are far too rediculos. Knowing that the price are at the high side i dont see the quality of their service is so good, what i mean?? stand at road side at some where near CBD area at timing closing to 12am, you see how many god dam taxi going to stop for you. BASICALLY NONE.........

An overseas friend took a cab and when the taxi reached his hotel the driver pressed some button and the meter increased 40% he refused to pay saying the driver was out to con him at the end the bellboy helped to defused the situation saying it was because of the surcharges

with many operators, and the varying peak hours, sometimes just lost track of the surcharge..

BTW, just now, from chinatown to Redhill is a whopping $10.50 by a SMRT Mercedes. I really muddle now. last Sat, it's only S$6.. at the same timing n same day, ie 7pm.. :confused:

and that's fault of the taxi drivers?

you need to hail them in order to let your intention to board a taxi, no?
Otherwise taxi will have to stop to anyone standing at road side. :bsmilie:
