UNREASONABLE MAN INSISTS NOT TO PAY FARE UNLESS BUS DRIVER SPEAKS ENGLISH

A SMRT bus driver was accused of stopping the bus for a prolonged period just so that he could get 2 kids to pay the fare. Their family member complained that he went on strike by stopping the bus and failing to communicate in English. However, a netizen stepped up to defend the bus captain by saying that the kids' father was being unreasonable and had refused another passenger who tried to translate for him. The complainant has since chickened out.

UK SURVEY: TAXI FARES IN SG THE 20TH CHEAPEST IN THE WORLD!

According to a survey by UK-based car dealer Carspring, taxi fares in Singapore are actually the 20th cheapest in the world. The survey supposedly took into account many factors such as the cost to hail a taxi, to travel from city centre to the airport, and cost per km. Do you think it's accurate? If it's really that cheap we wouldn't have to tahan train delays everyday.

KIND TAXI DRIVER FORGIVE ME FOR NOT HAVING MONEY, EVEN HELPED WITH MY BAGS

A Facebook user posted her touching account of a taxi driver who forgave her for losing her wallet and trusted her to pay him back through bank transfer. She was rushing to the airport when she realised she forgot to bring her wallet. She owned up to the driver who surprisingly gave her a smile and agreed with the bank transfer which she could only do after she lands at her destination. He even helped her with her bags and asked if she needed money.

Kudos to kind and magnanimous taxi uncle! Don't think we see many of such people around!

GRABHITCH DOESN'T SCREEN DRIVERS, SOME OF THEM ARE PERVERTED & UNRULY

Our reader dissuades people from taking Grabhitch as she claims that it does not screen or train its drivers properly. This means that anybody regardless of their behaviour can drive Grabhitch and RYDE. "I took Grabhitch once and that's my last ride ever, not only the driver came to pick me up with a different car, but he is a pervert and keep on asking me and talk big about disgusting stuff and even attempted to touch me! I have made a police report about such unruly behaviour and now nothing gets done yet. So I would suggest all to stop riding on Grabhitch, drivers who are not trained shouldn't be out there even hitching passengers! Please avoid at all cost, it not worth the 50% lower fares with all these problems and risk one have to take."

UBER CUSTOMER CHARGED $25 FOR $9 RIDE AFTER DRIVER DISPUTES FARE

Uber is a hypocrite, booked uberX from Choa Chu Kang MRT to Choa Chu Kang Cemetery last Saturday, before booking it was indicated that the fare will be $9.20, fixed rate. An expected 10 minute journey became 50 minutes because of the jam, so after alighting from the car, uber sent me an email saying that I am charged $9.20 for the ride.
