Almost all cab drivers are refusing fares unless you are paying CASH.
Total joke. I got refused 2 rides from downtown to the airport because I was paying by CC. I got refused 2 weeks ago to go to Coquitlam from downtown and we had 2 people get refused by MacClures after the company christmas party because they were using the taxi vouchers our company hands out (we have an account with them).
This is total BS. How does this town plan on having the Olympics when these POS taxi drivers refuse rides? We get told not to drink and drive, but then nobody can get home! Make sure you have a DD because the odds of getting anywhere in this place during the holidays is slim to none.
There aren't nearly enough cabs in this town, complete and total farse.
I have been working back and forth in Toronto over the last 6 months and it is way better there. Flat rate cabs to the airport, cabs lining the street, super easy to get a ride.
Anyways, that's my rant. If you want to take a cab home from the bar or your company christmas party, make sure you have plenty of cash to get home!
