Dreadful taxi trip to hotel

THERE should be a sound mechanism for monitoring taxi services in Hong Kong.

On September 13, I took some visitors in a taxi from Kai Tak Airport to the Omni Marco Polo Hotel, in Kowloon, at 6.30pm. The inconsiderate driver deliberately turned the volume of his radio up when we started chatting to each other. Throughout the journey, he was racing with other taxis.

Beefing up taxi regulations

I REFER to Mr A. L. Nanik's letter about taxi services which appeared in the South China Morning Post on October 15.

I wish to explain the Government's taxi policy and what has been done in the last few months to improve taxi services.

Taken for ride by cabbies

IT's about time that someone finally took responsibility for the ridiculous situation regarding taxi services.

Securing a taxi in this town is only half the battle. Dealing with the drivers' attitude, especially if you understand Cantonese gutter talk, is the other half.
