Disappointment in public Transport network.
This has happened to me many times. Mostly every time you get into a Karwa Taxi, Driver ask you about the drop down location, Then he goes saying about estimated price like a private illegal taxi driver.Then when i ask to switch on for Metered price he always has a excuse either meter is out of order or he has not achieved his target or this place is far or he says my price is same as the meter.
This is a big stress to get into a Karwa taxi. even you agree to a assumed price without the meter for the nearest location if it's little further by any chance because of the doubt. They fuzz, make faces in fact raise the voice ask for 5-10 riyals more and rip you off.
So many times I have been helpless and furious with these people because of no disciplined.
I have been in DUBAI for past 5 years never been unhappy with Taxi Drivers. They switched on the meter without no hesitation as soon as you say the location to travel.They are very friendly and has no hurry to leave you behind because there not Target minded.
Qatar is the Richest Country in the world, looking forward for 2022 World cup. If the Public Transportation Sector as a Vital Function of a Nation is maintained in a such a way it is a Disgrace and shows how disorganized as a Nation.
Hope Qatar Government open there eyes with corruption Happens in Karwa Taxi Division and maintained a disciplined Public Transportation service.
