Man pays $82 for cab fare from airport to Jurong West

Man pays $82 for cab fare from airport to Jurong West

For a 90-minute taxi ride from Changi Airport to Jurong West, Mr A. Kochumadhavan paid $82.59. On Dec 23 last year, he arrived at Changi Airport Terminal 3 after a 27-hour flight from Lisbon, Portugal, and got into a black SMRT Chrysler cab, unaware that such taxis command premium fares. Traffic on the ECP was heavy, and Mr Kochumadhavan arrived home 90 minutes after he had entered the cab. Cabbies whom The New Paper spoke to said that this is the steepest fare they have heard of in all their years of driving a taxi. More in The New Paper on Friday (Jan 13).
