ON THE ROAD: The many ways of traveling to work and vice versa, part 6

Isn’t it hard to pick the best way to get to work? Is there any way to make it even a bit easier? Well, there just might be! We’ve put together a concise analysis of the most common ways professionals get to work. Read on and find out the pros and cons of this week’s pick!

You picked: The Taxi

Speed: 4. Taxis are like private vehicles for hire. The driver will fulfill his obligation to you before picking up another passenger. Sometimes, they may stop for gas.

Availability: 3. Hailing a taxi is a reasonably easy task in the Philippines. There are many of them, and they are sometimes waiting in line because people prefer cheaper transportation.

Comfort: 4. Taxis are more comfortable than most public transport. Most operators take great care of their vehicles, both inside and outside, as an additional obligation to the franchise owner.

Safety: 3. Since passengers are sometimes alone, a small number of taxi drivers find opportunities to commit crimes. For the most part, though, taxis are safe from outside threats.

Cost: 1. Taxi drivers charge by the kilometer, on top of a standard flagdown rate. You may end up paying over PhP200 because of the distance or traffic. Some taxis tamper with their meters.

If you have money to spare, and need the convenience of a private vehicle, a taxi is for you.
