sana may magandang protection ang mga passengers para sa mga taxi na sasakyan nila.. sana may record ang bawat sasakay na pasahero at kung may complaint ang pasahero pwedeng ma ban ang taxi sa airport.

All the taxis should have a valid ID’s that registered on the TLO office in case there’s anomalies ; passengers can place complaint and they are able to track down the dishonest taxi drivers!

Napakahirap jan sumakay Ng taxi. Minsang sumakay Ako Ng airport taxi hanggang makati Lang Kami metro nya umabot Ng 800 sobrang kapal Ng mukha. Tapos Pag mga Hindi naman airport taxi namimili Ng pasahero Pag malayo kokontratahin. Dapat jan maghigpit ang mga operator Ng mga taxi Na yan Pag mag report Sa kanila na wala sa ayos driver nila parusahan agad. Napakaluwag din kasi at walang ngipin ang batas para sa mga manlolokong driver Na yan.
