Where to find the regular taxi driver for school drop off?

Post by crowsnest » Sun, 19 May 2013 9:26 pm

Hi, we're relocating to Singapore from sydney at end of May and will need a regular taxi service to drive us to the childcare in Turf City from Holland Rd (Mon to Fri except public & school holiday) at 8:15am on permanent basis from 3rd Jun onwards. Let me know if anyone is interested. Thanks in advance!

Hi. All preschools and schools have school buses that pick up an drop off at your door. Much cheaper and easier than a taxi.
But if you want the taxi option, the way we have done it in the past it to use taxi for the route for a few weeks. Chat to the drivers, you will often find one that lives locally and can do the same pick up every day. Some drivers do solely work runs for 2-3 hours each morning and PM - not picking up an non regular fares.

daysnknight, did you even bother to read the last post before you replied? Or was your inane comment just to get enough posts so you could activate your PM function. :roll:

One of the other mods deleted the other four, just as inane, posts while I was typing out that message....... :wink:
