In Today paper, several readers wrote about the difficulty in getting a taxi during the peak period. There is clearly a heavy demand for taxis that cannot be met, especially during the peak period.
One reader commented that we have proportionately more taxis in Singapore than in Hong Kong, relative to the population. The taxi service in Hong Kong is better.
Increasing the number of taxis does not help. It will depress the earnings of the taxi drivers.
The solution: Find a more efficient way to use our available taxis. I suspect that the current system is too complicated, and result in wasted resources and higher cost.
