Ride sharing and private-hire companies come and go with fanfare, but taxis continue to be a solid pillar of Singapore’s transport system. Over the decades, they have provided thousands of Singaporeans with a good means of earning an income, while offering Singapore commuters an affordable (compared to other major cities) and convenient way of travelling around the island.
Over the years, there has been a dizzying number of new fares, surcharges, peak hour charges and payment fees that most of us simply get on the cab and then pay whatever amount the meter says without question.

Taxis Are Here To Stay
Whether Singapore succeeds in transitioning into a “car lite” society depends on the widespread availability and affordability of taxis and other forms of public transportation. Along the way, new concepts and technologies might emerge, but you can be sure that taxis will remain an important piece of the public transport eco-system.
