So much on SMRT, let's talk about the new rules for taxis. Hopefully, taxis will be easier to hail by next year. I've noticed there is an increase of grandpas and grandmas becoming taxi drivers mainly to run errands for their children including the fetching of their grandchildren to and from schools and enrichment classes. Spoken to some and was told they take passengers only when time permits but the main aim is to take care of the extended family's travelling needs. So the new ruling is timely.
