Taxi's in Singapore even have credit card payments!

Which is extremely cool!!!


Check out the panel!

But it's not the type of credit card that you're thinking about such as American Express nor any banks for that matter. It's also called credit cards but are used specially for taxi's, something like this:

Yeah baby, it's my very own corporate card

Taxi's aren't cheap either in Singapore, in which compared to Malaysia, they have additional charges which depends on locations and etc. etc... But basically, since I had a corporate card, so why not abuse it right? Since it's not like I'm paying anything haha =p

MRT is considered the main mode of transportation in Singapore whereby they have really cheap fares (for them of course) in which they have a system where I totally support!

Breakfast at Tiffany's =p

I like their idea of using a touch card system, very much like our touch and go, only we get that instead of our normal LRT type of card! Each card purchased will have a deposit included in the fare which the amount is $1 and can anytime be redeemed at the ticket counters.

In one drawer, we were given this.

Can't help it but when we first got there, we were a bit clueless as to how the system worked but after an educational chat with one of the MRT operatives, I finally got it and actually, it's a very fun thing you know (except for the redemption of the deposit which becomes annoying).

And next to that, another drawer contains this..

They do have their own type of 'Touch & Go' where they will be able to top up themselves via any automated ticket counters which I find convenient, unlike ours where it can only be done via the main one!

But considering the options, I think that MRT serves the purpose of transportation a whole lot better than a taxi because it's a whole lot cheaper and it brings you to just about anywhere in Singapore! Informative isn't it this post? Haha

So now you know!

*Always wanted to say that =p*

    You can use any credit card to pay for you cab fare in Singapore, regardless AMEX, Visa or Mastercard from any bank. The only problem is that the Taxi uncles won't like it as they rather get straight cash rather then waiting for the credit company to pay them at end of the month. And not forgetting the addition charges we have to pay for using the card for cab payments.

    Hope you enjoyed your stay here. =)

    joejoe - Serious? Didn't know that. A cabbie told me that they don't accept it and only pointed out to 3 types of cards that they accept including the one I have.. Thx for the info though.

    Yeah, I did enjoy my stayed there..
