BEWARE OF THIS TAXI DRIVER:
Sumakay ako ng taxi galing Eastwood City papuntang Tandang Sora. Ang metro ko lang ay 295.50. Nung nasa bandang Commonwealth na kami sabi niya dagdagan ko daw ng 50 pesos dahil traffic daw. Sabi ko, "Bakit ko Kuya dadagan e may metro naman." Ang sabi niya, "Eh ang traffic traffic e." (Pasigaw)
Pagbaba ko inabot ko yung bayad ko, 500 pesos yung inabot ko sa kanya. Ang inabot niya lang sakin eh 100 samantalang 295.50 lang bill ng metro ko. Dahil sa natakot ako makipag talo sa kanya kinuha ko nalang yung 100 na isinukli niya. Pinatawag ko nalang yung mga guards sa condo para i-report yung taxi driver.
Sa akin lang, pwede naman magdagdag ako ng 50 pesos pero yung mandaya siya ng pasahero, maling mali yun.
Sana makarating ito sa ?#LTO? ?#DOTC? ?#LTFRB?

Do you think regular taxi drivers have the right to ask for additional payment just like Uber and Grab's payment system wherein they charge the rider additional costs by surge prices? Share your thoughts below.
