Suvarnabhumi Airport blacklisted a taxi with no meter after reports from a passenger who complained on a popular community website pantip.com.
After investigation the Land Transport Department found that the passenger took a taxi from the 2nd floor to the Bang Wa BTS station but noticed that the taxi had no meter installed.
The passenger noticed a sign on the taxi saying “800 – 900 THB in Bangkok and 1,000 – 2,000 THB to other provinces”.
The passenger immediately cancelled the ride as he had booked a metered taxi and was dropped off at the 4th floor.
The complaint was lodged by the passenger to the officials who questioned the driver and admitted the incident to be true. The officials therefore blacklisted the taxi driver from Friday.
