Taxi Hotlines in Manila

Are you going somewhere late at night in Metro Manila?

Do you have a flight to catch early in the morning or late in the evening?
Is your area or the point of destination very far from access to Public Utility Vehicles (e.g. Tricycle, Jeepneys, or Buses)
Carrying heavy stuffs which requires transport service to destination?

Is your personal car going to be affected by the number coding day in Manila and you need a car service?
Do you need a transport service to tour around Manila?

Solution to the problem, consider getting a taxi pickup service.

How does it work? These taxis are interconnected via a two-way radio paging system or any mobile communication system, which can be contacted by the company’s call center. The operator will search all units if there is an available taxi nearby your area. Once a driver acknowledges, the operator will give the address to the driver and will confirm to the caller the arrival of the pickup service.

Reminders:
·        Make sure to ask around your area first on what taxi service is best to take. There are feedbacks that in a certain area, some taxi services might be more accessible than others, particularly because the taxi headquarters is located in that area. If you cannot decide on what service company to take, you can call the Taxi Dispatch 373-TAXI (8294); the operators might be able to give you a good idea on which to take.
·        Most of these pick-up services have additional fees, so make sure to ask the operator how much you will be adding to the regular metered fare.
·        Always check if the meter is flagged down. This assures you at the very least that the fare would be based on the meter.
·        If you are satisfied with the service of the taxi that you rode, make sure to jot down or save on your phonebook the name and contact number of that taxi company so you will have someone to call if there's a need to take the service again.
·        Make sure to write down or send SMS to your relative or friend the taxi’s plate number as reference. In case you forgot something, it is easier to pinpoint which taxi to locate.
·        Do not hesitate to contact the LTFRB Hotline or DOTC Hotline if you find any problems or issues with the taxi that you encountered.

 
LTFRB National Capital Region East Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City 1100
