Access Security: Initially, the system forwards all incoming call to an automatic telephone company that lets you choose between the last two pick-up points, saving you one stage in the proces. Talking to the support representatives on the telephone was a fast and hassle free one.
One way or another, the taxis were quickly allocated each and every one in less than three minutes. Get in. It took two moments for most of the taxis to arrive at my pick-up point. I am not sure about you, but in my personal opinion the Comfort taxi is becoming more and more roomy (the newer taxis). I have a good idea of the comfort cabins in general.
On the other hand, the other extremity, mostly the older riders, is to go really slow and stay on the motorways in the right hand side of the road. Once there was an event, when this old thin nephew was driving about 60km/h, when there was no car in front of him!
Hey, folks, let's not be too tough with the cabbies, shall we? Contrary to the good old times, taxi riders today have to hit like a horseshoe just to get their rent and for their gas. For me it seems like a terrible task considering how much cash taxi riders make now and what kind of attitudes they get from angry people.
Although I am not particularly happy about the increase in taxi fees, I realised that it was only unavoidable. But how do you expect taxi riders to survive if they don't ask higher rates under all this price increases and rising cost? When you want a good taxi ride, get in the taxi with a big grin, give clear instructions and have courteous conversations.
Don't forgive the taxi drivers when you have reached your goal. I' m going to publish this as a general comment, because I' m not only aiming at comfortable taxis, but at all taxi drivers in Singapur. I would say the beginning of the new year was last evening after the count down we went drinking on the round street, afterwards we thought by going down to the lu al sat zat, there will be more taxis, so we went down and wait, we wait for about 2 whole Stunden lang, and no taxi in view, all taxis are either on call or rented, and the best part of the "rented" taxis, there is nobody in there.
There are more taxi cars, doesn't seem to be that way, there shouldn't be anything done against the riders who deliberately put their callsigns on call and make the additional $4, because when we eventually got a taxi, the taxi got there in less than 1 minute, which means that he either happened to be serving the area, or he's "camping" in the area when we got into the taxi, I didn't give the rider any bookings,
I asked him how come that you taxi driver are all on call, and when he was like the defense of those taxi driver, say we don't have when I was like, it's because you driver want to make the additional $4 right, and he just kept calm afterwards, maybe my sound was hard enough abstract, plus abstract the drunkenness in him, but I'm still austere enough to rationalize the rationale behind this whole thing, work ethics are everywhere mauled, it should be one for taxis as well.
Taxis are killin' my purse now that it leaps $0.20 every goddamn case instead of the old $0.10. A further criticism of Comfort (and all other taxi businesses in Singapore in general) is that there are either too many or no taxis on the streets.
All of a sudden all empty taxis on the street vanish in a magical way. Do they wait for frantic clients to call the taxi reservation number? What to do, you have to take a taxi and the taxi drivers have to make a livin, still they have to give you a salary, but probably they have to think about it before taking a taxi.
Hopefully the offer of cabs will stabilize with lower demands (i.e. not every man just enters as a taxi driver) so that taxi riders can continue to achieve a reasonable level of revenue. I just won't call the Comfort Taxi number. You keep saying that your chauffeurs have no right to decline reservations, but I still see "on demand" cabs driving everywhere on CBD, and yet I can't take a taxi!
And I don't know if it's because they modified their system, now I can't get to the automatic line and always have to sit waiting for the server. UND the user is also occupied and cannot answer my call. I have a comfort taxi and my father is a comfort taxi rider, but I rarely take taxis (unless he drives me free).
He' got to be paying over $900 a wk in taxi hire, so I reckon that would explain why taxi rates are getting more costly. A taxi is only necessary if I have to take my pet to the veterinarian, the nearest airports or to go to the shops. Taxi driver are usually kind and supportive.
However, some comfort riders like to take a longer road to generate additional revenue. Comfort Bookings Helpline is automatic and I like it. All in all, the taxi driver is fine with comfort. In the KL I saw taxi riders who are just terrible, impolite and hungry.
