Silvercab Review

by Tan Yi Hui, The Straits Times

Silvercab (Premier Taxis)
2,300 cabs and 15 operators
Tel: 6363-6888

Call service: Out of four calls, twice I could not get through on the first attempt. Total time on hold for each failed call: about six minutes.

Calls that did get through took only about three minutes for the operator to confirm a cab. They were friendly and one even asked if I was headed to the same destination again.

Punctuality: Cabs arrived roughly on time, give or take three to four minutes. One driver called to assure me he was on his way.

Verdict: The drivers were all polite and observed proper road safety, although one did seem like he was in more of a hurry than I was. He weaved in and out of traffic, and was well aware of the short cuts.

Given that the call-through rate on first attempt was only 50 per cent, the desperate might despair. More than five minutes of elevator music culminating in a ‘please try again later’ can be unnerving when you need a cab in a hurry.
