Anyone with updated info on erring taxis. Taxi company and/or plate numbers? Especially those notorious for choosing/extorting passengers

there was a taxi na naipalabas sa TV i forgot the name, kulay red ang name nya...
and usually ung mga taxis na siguro mga less than 5 ang units nila yun ang mga mapipili sa pasahero...
and most taxis now adays bihira na ang nagme-metro puro lahat gusto is kontrata, better yet kung sasakay kayo ng taxi
ang piliin nyo is yung TAI (Toyota Alabang Inc.) Taxi, for sure metro sila lagi and hindi sila namimili ng pasahero..
yan lang po ang napapansin ko...

Ya, I also saw that. For me so far, I avoid Ken-Ken and Ralp Taxis. I recommend MGE.

i frequently take MGE, R&E, EMP or NINE STARS, basta ung may green/yellow or white body color :thumbsupsmiley:

i avoid WALLIS, TROCADERO, MIDA'S TOUCH and other taxi name under the same management. mga manloloko at ang bilis ng metro. :angry2:

i have several traumatic experiences sa mga taxi kaya sad to say bihira na lang at mabibilang sa kamay na ang mababait na taxi drivers. kung walang choice na talaga ay doon lang ako nag ta-taxi. i go for those big taxi companies who has radio inside. yung mga yun kasi pag may nag reklamo na apektuhan yung mga ibang kasamahan nila, so medyo standardized ang streamlined ang services nila.

i have a lot of bad incidents sa mga taxi drivers talaga, do we have a thread for that here?

he he he!

ako rin! ganun din ang nasa isip ko kapag may nahoholdap na taxi driver...
siguro namimili ng pasahero o mahilig mangontrata yung driver kaya nakarma.




si (Ret.)Gen. Reynaldo Berroya na head ng LTO ngayon, mukhang may mangyayari na
sa kampanya laban sa mga abusadong taxi drivers.

pakibasa na lang ang mga sumusunod:

I have talked to a former driver of Wallis and he confirmed that they use a certain device called "batingting" that speeds up the meter, without breaking the LTO lock.

He said that he can just activate the device somewhere near the steering wheel and unknowing passengers (especially those, he claims, picked up from provincial bus stations) can pay as much as PHP 1,000 for a trip from Cubao to Monumento, which normally costs around PHP 120-PHP 140.

So beware, guys.

That's it WALLIS is the name... and i'm sure na madami pa ibang taxi and katulad nila... lalo na ngayong season... so let's just beware, piliin na lang yung mga taxing mapagkakatiwalaan....

Happy Holidays peeps!!!

Yep madaya talga ang wallis, trocadero and midas touch. I talked to a driver from there once and he admitted to it. Add ko lang, garapal din cla dahil hindi nila binayaran damages sa auto ko nung binangga ako with one of their taxis. KAASAR :grr:

Madalas ko ring marinig iyang Wallis na iyan sa kapwa taxi driver nila. Balita ko taga Caloocan ang mga driver nito. Minsan may nasakyan akong taxi di ko lang matandaan ang pangalan potek tuwing malilingat ako nadadagdagan ang metro.

when you said red taxis, I thought you meant either Dollar or Ken-Ken as those are the ones I know with red cars :lol: until you mentioned Wallis and then I realized you meant red lettering..... I also stay away from Wallis..... I always flag down either EMP or MGE.... they have radios and if you have the number of their dispatch which is displayed in their units, you can always ask for a pick-up service anywhere... if these are hard to find, I go with the 9 Stars and R & E or E & E... all came from the same taxi company.... then there is the 24/7 cab if you're in Makati and Xavierville if you live in Mandaluyong...

A driver from AVI tried to have me add 50 pesos to the meter...

Instead of my usual drop off sa likod ng burgundy corporate tower...I had him drop me off at the intersection of pasong tamo...the bastard even had the balls to ask where is the additional 50...I never even agreed to it...So I asked if we could go to the police at the corner to settle it...wag na lang daw...buena mano (tama ba) na lang daw...if you're gutsy and there is a cop nearby, this is an effective way of avoiding extortions...

Saw him again and I never take his cab anymore

the horrendous stories about cab drivers is never ending
especially in this season. almost all drivers will ask u first
where u're headed. either they dont run out of reason not to
take you or they tell you they wont use the meter.

wallis reigns supreme in terms of 'doctored' meter.
my family and i once took a wallis from our place to a nearby mall,
thats around 60 pesos max. imagine our disgust when the meter
ended at P150! the driver even had the guts to argue that he's
meter was working right.

i prefer to take the known cab companies, esp using their phone-a-cab
service:

emp - 293 5931/293 5930
mge - 366 6287
basic - 900 1447/ 900 1448
r&e - 330 1654
alkotby - 373 8294/ 417 0317

I always hate riding taxis. Whenever I had bad experiences with them, I write their plate number. Here:

TVU 171 - asked me P100 for just 3 KM of ride
TVN 342 - Driver name Pacifico Burdeos. Shouted and got mad at us because we asked why he took a long way.
PXH 999 - The cab has no aircon, so we said there should be a discount. He dropped us out of nowhere.

Almost every taxi driver is annoying. Sometimes I wish I had some spikes for their wheels.
