Daylight robbery! Two Thais pay nearly 800 baht for a 5 km journey on Bangkok motorcycle taxis

Recommended Posts

And why should we believe this story?

Someone said that someone demanded lots of money. Yeah, sure...

Couple of days ago I was asking the fare to Central ladphrao and the guys said " 500Tb" heavy traffic. I was flabbergasted and thought better take the bus 138 as the taxi rank had a very long queue. 10 baht all the way to Ladphrao Hospital, thank you. Then taxi to my soi😀

Silly beggars...always agree on price beforehand.......:thumbsup:

They thought they did... about 100 baht.

But being youngsters the Win riders took advantage!

Im not sure but I believe the Win are only allowed to go short distances and are restricted to their own area.

After a sharp intake of breath and muttering about the state of the traffic one of the "wins" reluctantly agreed to take them saying it would be about 100 baht.

And that is why ride hailing apps likeGrab and Uber are becoming so popular. I’ve had enough of being cheated. Tuk tuks could have had meters years ago, taxis could have been forced to use the meters in places like Pattaya and Phuket, but the cheating and commissions would have been stopped.
