Taking a cab in Singapore🇸🇬

I grew up with either the blue or yellow cabs but now there’re 6 taxi operators and several private ride hailing such as Uber, Grab. With a population of approximately 5.7 million people and an island city, we do have choices when it comes to what cab to take!

With choices come decisions. And usually price and service shape our decisions on public transportation. Even within the same operator, different car models command different fares…so we really need a good chart to help us decide!

Useful Singapore taxi information

👆🏻I found this article to be concise yet informative. It covered essential information on

  • fare comparisons – flag down fares, booking fees, cancellations, peak vs off peak
  • types of payments accepted

Do your homework too. Now that you know the names of the cab operators, it is worthwhile to download their apps or check their websites. Where you’ll find up to date information on latest promotions, promo codes 😊 and in-app cashless payments.

Thanks for reading and following our blog!

Supporting hearing impaired drivers

As we end the last day of November and head into the last month of 2019, and a time where fake news and hypocrisy have fueled protests and riots around the world.

With so much negativity, I wanted to start December … positive.

Your next cab ride in Singapore could be driven by a hearing impaired driver. Another excellent example of inclusivity.

For those not familiar with Grab, it is a Singapore based transportation company. In fact I’ll be making a post soon on the Singapore taxi scene for would be travelers to Singapore. Stay tuned!
