For families, or groups traveling together with more than three people, Singapore has approved a Maxicab system. These vehicles can carry as many as seven visiting passengers, plus their luggage, allowing everyone to fit comfortably into the vehicle. As with regular taxis, rates depend on the time of day and destination.
Maxicab rates start at fifty Singapore dollars. For an extra ten dollars, Singapore, a Maxicab will meet and greet visitors and transfer them into their arrival destination. This type of transportation is also great for touring Singapore, with special two-hour rates or day long rates available.
There are a wide range of services available with special Maxicab rates. The company website is located on the Internet at www.maxi-cab.sg where you can get complete details on the various services available.

Each terminal has fast and efficient ways of getting you into an official taxi, regardless of how many passengers have arrived simultaneously. Fare sharing in regular sized taxi vehicles is discouraged. Lowest average rate into the city center is about 15 Singapore dollars.
