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.
