TABS - Taxi Automated Booking System

Subscribers of M1 and Singtel can call a taxi by sending a SMS with TAXI (6 digit postal code) to 79797. For example, if your home is at postal code 809744, you can send TAXI 809744.

Subscribers of Starhub do not need to send the postal code, as their location can be picked up automatically. But, they can also send the postal code if they wish.

The taxi booking fee is $1.50 (off-peak hours) and $2.50 (peak hours). This system is on trial for the next few weeks.

There is no charge to the customer for TABS. You only pay for the usual SMS charge to your mobile operator - for most people there is a package of free SMS with your subscription.
