Be Careful: Unscrupulous Filipino Taxi Driver

At Manila International Airport, TAXI #C-023 (car license plate no.TYT-396) from T4 old Domestic Airport to Binondo Area (Tutuban Center, C.M. Recto Avenue, Manila), along Roxas Blvd., the shortest way must make a right turn to Padre Burgos St. right after the Rizal Park, but the taxi driver detours the long route from Bonifacio Dr back to Ongpin St., total mileage as high as 36.3km, metered up to P394. Requested the driver to stop in Reina Regente St., but he continues to drive until we reached No.1078 C.M. Recto St.

Taxi driver C-023(TYT-396)intentionally did not zero-balance his taximeter, accumulated mileage from previous passenger to cheat fare and/or using batingting, a hidden illegal device to speed up the meter.

The normal fare of metered taxi from T4 to Binondo area is around P200-P230, mileage 12-15km.
