You're not a Filipino if you have not experienced abusive and over-charging taxi drivers!
It sucks when all you wanted was to get home comfortably and these cab drivers won't let you ride because you don't want to add 50 Pesos or just cause they feel FTI/Paranaque is a long drive from Makati.
Well at least now we can easily report them without doing the
hassles of sending written complaints and calling busy trunk lines,
thanks to www.taxikick.com everything is as easy as 1-2-3!
You just have to type in the Plate Number , Choose the violation from the drop-down options, write the Taxi Name and your comments, the click "Kick This Taxi". The app will then send an email with the details of the complaint to LTFRB.
Over-charging, contracting, refused boarding, rude behavior, and even smelly interiors are some of the violations listed in Taxikick.com
Here are actual complaints submitted today (01/06/2011)
Taxikick.com App was developed by Pencil Rocket (a group of concerned web designers and developers based in Manila). You can follow them on Twitter @TaxiKick and "like" their facebook page here!
I am yet to send in a complaint using taxikick.com (thanks to my ever dependable 2nd hand wagon), but I know sooner or later I will. Let's face it, getting a Taxi here in Manila (on a regular day) is like getting a flight to Boracay on Holy Week. You have to work hard to get one!
