Hay Naku (Agad, wala pa ngang kuwento, heheh) Sa tricycle grabe dami kong experience diyan medyo liblib na kasing lugar sa amin kung my nakikita kayong tricycle na apatan na yong nasa loob grabe pag sobrang liit ng tricycle tapos lalaki pa ang katabi mo mamanyak pa ka talaga kahit tipong umiiwas ka na at todo balibag ka pa.
Isa pang nakakainis eh one time na my malaking gagamba na napunta a ulo ko hindi naman ako puwedeng umalis or gumalaw kasi masikip nga eh.  Tapos one time nakasakay ko lasing naman na lalaki. my God bumaba talaga ako! Tapos one time pa papauwi na rin siyempre kahit papaano fresh pa naman tayo kasi office galing pero naku po! yong magiging katabi mo naman parang sinawsaw sa sukang paumbong! eewwww... ::) ::) ::)

Sa jeep naman nakakainis yong mga babae din upong prinsesa na hindi man lang umayos ng upo para maka-upo naman ng maayos yong ibang pasahero na gustong umuwi dun ako inis na inis heheh.. Inconsiderate naiisip ko na lang minsan na sabihin na mag-taxi na lang ka na lang kaya para lahat sakop mo.

One time naka taxi ako kasama bunso ko. The driver wanted to pass a road na hindi ko kabisado kaya sabi ko "huwag ho diyan, deretcho po tayo". Sagot ba naman sa akin "bakit, sosyal ka ba?"
Grrrr!!!!
Buti nalang hindi niya tinuloy kung hindi, bababa kami talaga. And yes, I always text my husband the plate no of taxi. I even check the plate no pag para pa lang and if it's the same plate no na naka sulat sa loob ng taxi. I also observe the clothing of the driver kung mukhang barumbado o naka white polo. Minsan din, ginamit ko camera ng cel ko to take a pic of his face reflected sa dashboard mirror.

experience ko to sa tricycle when i was a small kid hindi ko talaga sya makalimutan cgro mga 10-11 years old ako.may isang tricycle driver na lagi ako sinasakay from school to our house pero hindi ko sya service siguro tyempo lang na labasan ng school syempre bata wala akong malisya or what basta iniisip ko lang mabait sya sa akin and parang anak ang turing niya, then 1 time dun niya ako pinasakay sa may gasoline tank ng tricycle, eh nung bata ako gustong gusto ko sumakay dun so sakay ako.that time kumakain ako ng piknik na nasa lata so inalok ko sya then sabi niya subuan ko daw sya, so ginawa ko wala naman malisya sa akin yun as in wala akong muwang pa.tapos may isang pasahero na nakapansin na parang iba yung treatment nung driver sa akin so ginawa niya kinalabit niya ako at pinalipat doon sa tabi niya which is sa loob na ng tricycle nung vacant na yung seat tapos pinasabay niya ako na bumaba sa kanya at binigyan niya nalang ako pamasahe ulit pauwi para lang makaiwas ako dun sa driver, kinausap niya ako na iba daw yung trato sa akin nung driver, iba daw yung tingin niya parang may binabalak baka daw bigla ako i-rape. ayun mula noon hindi na ako sumakay sa tricycle na yun kahit sinasabi niya na sumakay ako sa kanya.natakot talaga ako.hindi ko rin nasabi sa parents ko till now.

Once nakasakay na kami sa taxi. Maarte yung driver, ayaw dun sa pupuntahan namin. Wala namang problema, hindi naman kalayuan at wala namang traffic. Sa inis ko, baba kami ng anak ko using the door farthest from the driver. I opened it wide, got out and left it open. Lakad kaming mabilis ng anak ko palayo. Bahala siyang magsara nun. At least nakaganti ako.

Even if its just a case of an "Arrogant Driver/Conductor (Suplado/bastos/mayabang na drayber o kundoktor)"...you can report that to the DOTC and they will take action.

DOTC Online Complaint Form - Road
http://www.dotc.gov.ph/action_center.html

Taxi Drivers can be charged for a violation of Commonwealth Act No. 146, otherwise known as the Public Service Act for alleged “overcharging of fare, arrogance and discourtesy”. 

They are supposed to be fully aware how to treat their passengers because it is assumed that they have undergone a seminar from the DOTC about this.

If you encounter a discourteous driver, you can just take down the details of the incident and report it to the DOTC.  Try to avoid confronting a driver so as not to provoke him to violence especially if you're alone or travelling with a small child.  Reporting will be enough.  You can meet that driver again in a hearing at the DOTC Action Center, where the venue is secured by DOTC investigators.

If you have given an email address, you will receive a formal invitation to attend the hearing.  You will get a copy of this formal invitation in your mailing address

Appearing for the hearing, with the driver and operator, is optional:

I am willing to attend hearing (Payag akong dumalo sa mga pagdinig) *
If you answer "No," the DOTC Action Center will inform the operator so that the latter may make the necessary action on the matter. (Kung ang napili ay "Hindi," ipagbibigay-alam ng DOTC Action Center sa operator/may-ari ang naganap upang sila ang gumawa ng karampatang aksyong pagdidisiplina)

Taxi Fare, How to Estimate and Detect Overcharging
« Reply #96 on: April 25, 2014, 09:41:17 am »

The published fare rates for Taxis in Metro Manila as of 2010 is:

P40 upon flag down and for the first 500 m (0.5 km), plus P3.50 for every 2 minutes waiting time, plus 3.50 for every 300 m (0.3 km)

LTFRB - Metro Manila Fare Rates and History
http://ltfrb.gov.ph/media/downloadable/fare_rates_MM.pdf

In my personal observation as a commuter, the P40.00 flag down seems to be only on the first 400 m (0.4 km), the additional P3.50 occurs every 3.00 minutes and increase of P3.50 is for every 300 m (0.3 km)

When you ride a taxi, observe the meter for yourself and get the "feel" of the rate.  For me, the rate changes to P43.50 when the kilometer is past 0.4 but has not yet turned to 0.5.  The rate becomes P47.00 when you reach 0.7 km.  I will notice an additional P3.50 on the meter when we frequently slow down or stop and the timer is at 3.00 minutes.

Last night, I noticed a fast meter and I am planning to report it to the DOTC.  Here is what I noticed.

Apr. 24, 2014, ended at 9:31 PM
P40.00 to P43.50 @ 0.3 km
P43.50 to P47.00 @ 0.7 km
P47.00 to P50.50 @ 0.9 km
P50.50 to P54.00 @ 1.1 km 3.00 min
P54.00 to P57.50 @ 1.4 km 3.00 min
P57.50 to P61.00 @ 1.6 km 3.44 min
P61.00 to P64.50 @ 1.9 km 4.00 min
P64.50 to P68.00
P68.00 to P71.50 @ 2.1 km 4.50 min
P71.50 to P75.00 @ 2.4 km 4.50 min
P75.00 to P78.50 @ 2.7 km
P78.50 to P82.00 @ 3.0 km
P82.00 to P85.50 @ 3.3 km
P85.50 to P89.00 @ 3.5 km 5.15 min
P89.00 to P92.50 @ 3.7 km 5.47 min
P92.50 to P96.00 @ 4.0 km 6.00 min
P96.00 to P99.50
P99.50 to P103.00

Another seemingly fast meter:

Feb 27, 2014, 7:01 AM to 7:12 AM
P40.00 to P43.50 @ 0.2 km 1.00 min
P43.50 to P47.00 @ 0.4 km 2.40 min
P47.00 to P50.50 @ 0.5 km 4.29 min
P50.50 to P54.00 @ 0.9 km 4.42 min
P54.00 to P57.50 @ 1.0 km 4.50 min
P57.50 to P61.00 @ 1.2 km 5.58 min

Wow, you noted it talaga? Hindi po ba mahirap noting it while the cab is running?

Hi Mommy Jazz:

Yes, I used my cellphone, an old monochrome Nokia 1202...and sent the list to myself.  Enjoy naman, mas unexciting yung dati kong ginagawa...ang magbilang ng poste para ma-estimate ang patak ng metro.  I like it better now...mas accurate.  Tripping lang, hahaha (from 8 to 11 na poste ang bawat patak ng metro).  Nakakainis kasi ang mga driver na niloloko ka.  Minsan, mapansin lang nila na nakatingin ka sa metro, di na nila dadayain.  Sometimes, kailangan mo talaga sitahin para mag-ayos.

Correction: the time is in hours and not in seconds.  That's 0.31 of an hour in the picture.


Last February 14, 2014 I was at the DOTC Action Center in Ortigas for a hearing with a popular Taxi Company.  A taxi driver attempted to increase the rate by taking a longer route to our destination.  This happened around December 2013.  My motivation in pursuing a case like this is not just for myself but also for all the commuters who encounter similar situations (some chosing not to complain).

Magbilang ng poste, Haha!
I would like to try this, monitoring yung patak ng metro, maybe by taking photo with my cel. It's true people choose not to complain and rather rant on FB na parang may maitutulong ang makakabasa instead na sa tamang kinauukulan nila i-forward ang problema. It's good to know that DOTC came up with an action like schedule a hearing or notify the operator. Hindi naman pala mahirap to take the first step, as many are not aware of.
Hey, gusto nating maging maayos ang problema, then report a case and attend hearing. Problems will not be solved by sitting down and posting your problems online. It takes work.
