PostSubject: taxi in Changshu   Thu Oct 21, 2010 12:40 am

CS SPECIALITY:
1.Everytime I take a taxi alone in CS, the driver will always stop on the way, to ask other ppl if they would like to take the taxi with me, without asking me. And sometimes I say no they just get angry, and shout at me.
2.the taxi is not always clean; aircondition may be broken;suddenly speed up suddenly stop


the conclution: taking a taxi is an adventure in life

YES ! I agree.
One time my driver shout with another driver,
and did a "race" with him,
he didn't stop to my house !!
Whaoh, I was very angry, I didn't pay...

It's why, after 2 month, I quickly get the chinese driving license.......

PostSubject: does tht mean the fare is shared?   Fri Oct 22, 2010 10:07 pm

hi,

I am surprised that today something similar happened. The cab driver took another gal at a signal and drove off. Owing to almost nil knowledge of chinese, I tried asking that gal abt sharing the cab. She arrogantly responded no english.

I was shocked that even the cab driver didnt charge me less. Shouldnt one share the fare?????

usually both u and the girl should pay ur own fee, u don't share.
only once I got so angry that I refused to pay and walked away arrogently.
but my mum told me it's dangerous, I'd better pay for safe sake.
this is real life

: the simple way is if your fare is more than 10 rmbs just pay 10 if the taxi is shared, thats an understood thing, but if not more then 10 then go ahead and pay the ten and get off ....OR when the taxi driver stops for picking somebody else tell him NO with a angry face im sure he wont ,this happened many times with me , so cut the them some slack Smile

sometimes I just tell myself that don't be so mean and so serious.It's not a big deal having someone sharing a taxi with me. If the taxi driver has a choice, he won't do sth like this. Life is not easy for them.

PostSubject: regular service to CEDZ   Tue Feb 12, 2013 6:41 pm

Dear all,

soon I will need to travel from Changshu downtown to CEDZ which is a little behind Meilizhen, approx a 40 minutes' ride.
Would it be possible to have an agreement with a taxi company or driver to drive me to CEDZ evenry morning and pick me up in the afternoon for a fixed rate per month?
Anyone tried that or other suggestions how to get to CEDZ?

Ah yes... and if someone has experience about that... how much would it cost?

谢谢!

You can get Changshu taxis to stop?!
I can never get them to stop for me. On the few times that they DID stop, they either did not know how to get to the place (so couldn't take me) or told me that it was REALLY close by and pointed me the (wrong) direction to walk.

People here are useless.
