Today I took the blue taxi, which is the executive taxi. It costs RM15 for a ride from the Aeon Bukit Indah shopping mall to somewhere that is also in Bukit Indah.
I took the executive cab because the budget taxi (red one) asked for RM25. As I was walking away, the driver of the red cab reduced it to RM20, and eventually to RM15.
Well, if I can get an executive ride for the same price, why not go for blue?
For those who seldom take taxis, the flag down fare of a budget taxi is RM3 while an executive cab charges RM6.
Being carless is actually giving me the opportunity to experience all this, which I would've missed if I were driving my car, which is currently still at the workshop.

Earlier I had arrived at the Aeon shopping mall using Uber. The fare was RM3.97. See the difference? Uber is not legit, you say? Charging RM15 for a ride that should have cost only RM8, or the most RM10, is also not legit.
