Smartphone Apps to Use So You Wont Get Rip Off by Kuala Lumpur Cabs Nov 27, 2012
Kuala Lumpur is known to be an amazing city. But the taxi drivers are among the worst in the world. They'll overcharge you whenever they can.

Thanks to the era of smartphones, you can now hail a cab (RM 2 fee applies) anywhere easier, faster and with less chances of being conned.

Here are 2 free apps you can download to get a cab in any parts of the town.

1. MyTeksi

Book with this app (android & ios), and your request will be sent to taxi drivers, who will bid for the job. You'll get an sms in less than 3 minutes, with the taxi drivers info, and the estimated fare.

Not happy with your driver? You can now rant in the apps. Malaysian public transport authority (SPAD) said that they read the comments and investigate them accordingly.

2. Taxi Monger

Another app for android users. The functions are similar to the above but you can also read reviews by other passengers online.

Good luck guys!

p/s The drivers you get sent via this apps are registered with the developers. Using these apps reduce the chances of you being ripped off by many unethical taxi drivers during your vacation in KL.

Thanks nolan. I don't know that there's a section for that here. Still trying to figure out how to use the site.

Thanks for pointing that out.
