    • Again can ask to make this into a Sticky?

      Yesterday alone, I pick up 2 different passengers between 5-8pm in that vicinity. One is near a bus stop along Cantonment Link (at the side of Keppel Tower). Another also near a bus stop along Upper Pickering Street leading towards 1 George Street (on the left) and the Great Eastern Building (on the right).

      When they boarded, I make sure they should clearly see I pressed the City Charge in front of them. But they didnt say anything. They then insist I cut in left here, cut right there, then hurry somemore for the fastest shortest route.

      But when I reach their destination, I notice they already prepare the payment exactly to hand over and then get ready to alight quickly..but MINUS the City Charge. Which when I asked, they claimed, where got? no have, they shouldnt pay because they are on different road what. No choice, couldnt talk for long, because both times, where they alighted, there happened to be cars behind.

      Later on when I thought back on it, I wondered why other cabs didnt pick them up earlier from where they stood, before me. Is it because...?

      Thats why here, I would like to ask for help if we could draw or outline the parameter of the City Charge clearly, both for our own as well as our future passengers reference. Thank you very much.

    • bro how come your pax always give u so many problems one?

      Cantonment link outside CBD , Keppel Towers is within, if you pick from the lobby of keppel towers , got CBD.

      Pickering street confirm got CBD surcharge. CBD surcharge are those areas that fall inside the ERP gantries. anythin that is outside is not CBD area.

      Well , what i can advise you is to be firm but before you make your stand , you have to make sure it is within boundary. its not really hard to remember leh.

    • I dun understand leh ....

      Cantonment cannot press CBD Surcharge leh ...

      Upper Pickering is CBD ma ....

      Is it the same pax ?

      Or they boarded at Cantonment , pick their friend at Upper Pickering ????

      Anyway , no need sticky la .

    • The best is .... go into CBD .

      Why bother to stop for those cheapo ?

      Singapore got so many cheapo because taxi stop for them !!!

      Singapore got so many cheapo because taxi driver make them think they are very hungry for their money !!!

      Just dun give a damn to those waiting pax outside CBD , u will not have such problems .

      Others dun take got reason one .

      Mustapha pax u got take ?

      Same theory .

      U mean just a few metres away from CBD ..... u dun give yourself a chance to have a go at CBD ?
