LOWER THAN OTHER CITIES
But cab fares here are already lower than in many other cities.
According to Land Transport Authority statistics for 2005, the basic taxi fare for a 10km trip in Singapore is about $8.
In Hong Kong, the same trip would cost about $15 while in New York, it would be $18 and in London, $28.
umm, i don't know about hong kong, but how much more do people earn in new york and in london for approximately the same types of jobs than do people over here? i kinda think that was a really lousy comparison; correct me if i'm wrong.
okay, so i'm darn pissed 'cos i'm either gonna turn up very late for everything in future, or i'm gonna go like super broke... 'cos i haven't discovered a way as of yet to waking up on time for stuff. heehee.
