And if you’re considering booking a maxi cab for an airport transfer to or from the Singapore Changi Airport, you would expect that the drivers have received the Land Transport Authority (LTA) accreditation. Also if the driver have had to go through other extra training which is related to the company’s transportation services.
Does their drivers had any basic first aid training and had also undergone basic customer relationship training. You wouln’t want to board a maxi cab in Singapore with a driver who doesn’t know what to do when there is an accident or with a very bad customer service attitude.
The Company’s Vehicle Fleets Average Age
Who would one want to travel in an old, noisy vehicle that spurns black smoke like a steam engine train. That may be an extreme, especially if you are booking for a maxi cab which is known to be a robust vehicle with luxurious and comfortable interior. Knowing the fleet’s age will tell you roughly if there’s any chances of having a breakdown and whether the vehicle’s other amenities such as the air conditioning are still in good shape.
Lastly, Check the Company’s Experience in the Transportation Services

So that you could expect a proffesional and experienced driver picking you up whenever you engage their services. And you know deep inside that if something unfortunate were to happen, your designated driver would know what to do.
