Commonly we're used to see taxis in white and yellow - well, we too have those shades in Davao, a variety of names carry the white and the yellow one is exclusively carried by Maligaya Taxi. As I write there are roughly around 4,200 taxis plying the roads of Davao - with this number I wonder why sometimes when you need one there is none.
And of course my ever-loved purple one, they carry the name Madayaw Taxi.
And the blue taxi - they're currently hiring lady drivers just in case you ladies out there need some extra. Following the city ordinance that prohibits non-airconditioned taxis on the road + the ever rocketing gas prices - flag down rate for taxis in Davao is now P30.00 for the first 4 kilometers. Other the fixed route jeeneys, taxis are the most convenient transport in the city, if you're a foreigner you don't have to pay extra for the translation, all drivers in town can speak and understand English and all roads signs are written in English.
I'm not sure if I'll be seeing red, pink and green ones in the future.. that remains to be seen.
