This sign is a lie

Even though it’s on every taxi in KL.

Meter? What meter?

Drivers haggle when it suits them, and there’s not much you can do about it when you need to get somewhere. Then again, an “expensive” cab ride in KL is $8… what am I complaining about?

    FYI: The cab fare from the downtown Amtrak station in Milwaukee to the Milwaukee School of Engineering is about $8. That is a distance of about 1.3 miles.

      Good point, Eric. I started to push back against a haggling cabbie today, and then I stepped back and wondered: what’s the point of talking him down from 10 ringitt (US$3.18) to 8 ringitt (US$2.54)? I gave him 10. We may have gone 1.3 miles, actually!
