Title: List of Meter Taxi's and their Contact No.s
Post by: RZ on September 09, 2011, 06:05:56 pm
I figured with the Meter Taxi business in Sri Lanka booming and with a ridiculously large number of competitors entering this market, it's hard to keep track of all the services available. Sometimes it's just as hard to just stick to one taxi service as they may not have a free taxi or have one in your area at the time, so it's beneficial to have a list of taxi services to check with.

So I thought it would be helpful for everyone if we put up a comprehensive list of Meter Taxi services on this thread, constantly updated, so that when in need of quick and affordable transport, this can be your place to turn to :)

I've also noticed the quality of the service is distinctly better with some meter taxi's over others. Hopefully I can come up with a good grading scheme for them as well! For now, my personal favourites are Fair Taxi, AAA Taxi and Necessary Taxi.

Also, I don't know how many of the above numbers are up to date, so if I've made any mistakes or if there are any numbers that don't work or that I've missed just let me know. I also know for a fact that there are more services out there, so if you know of any that I've missed, please post them up and I'll update them in my first post :)

Cheers!

Good stuff :)  Let me add something that might be useful. Get one of those people hand phone number and keep. Whenever you want to get a taxi first call that guy and see if he is available or not. That way you become one of his decent customers.

Last week I wanted to come from Kiribathgoda to Dehiwala around 1am in the morning. My aiya only calls one guy when he needs a taxi. So I called that guy and he was ready to come from Colombo to Kiribathgoda and pick me up without charging for coming there as he says my aiya is the biggest customer of him. :D

try nano cabs its pretty comfortable its 50 LKR at start then its 40 LKR per km A/C and privacy and the driver has a GPS to know where exactly you want to get so theres no need to show each and every road in case the driver doesnt know i travel from kotte to galkisse for around 300 - 340 LKR which is pretty must like 30 - 40 LKR more than in a budget taxi :D try it it out but the only bad problem about the nano cab is that they are not freely available in every neighborhood so you need to be at least half hour or 20 mins in before booked

And also TATA nano Car charge a Rs. 100~115 call-up fee (which also includes two kilometer of travel) and Rs. 40~45 per kilometer thereafter, charged per every 100 meters. There is a 15% surcharge between 10pm and 5am. While waiting – whether in traffic, or parked – costs another Rs. 2.50 per minute.some companies gives firts half an hour free for waiting and thereafter 2.50 per minute.

# Romaka Taxi – (011) 2 836 000

# Fair Taxi – (011) 7 588 588,

# Cyber Taxi – (011) 7 313 008

# Fun Taxi –  (011) 7 818 818

You can also flag them down off the road, but that’s rare since they’re almost always heading to pick up a hire.

Enjoy....

Prices aside our taxi drivers in general need:

1) To learn key road & place-names or at least keep a PRINTED map-book in the car.
2) Basic safety - ie: check before crossing a railway track, before hurtling through a junction , esp when the lights are on blinking yellow. Don't overtake when there's a shitload of oncoming traffic hurtling at you (You're in a nano - the other guy is driving a bus - don't be the guy who gets squished like a bug). Etc etc

It's upto the taxi companies to push these service standards - and of course customers to want them!

A lotta people, (myself included) used printed maps before Gmaps came on the scene, so yeah, it's low tech enough that you can't screw it up...but maybe we're looking at a generation that doesn't know what a book or an index is.
