On Friday evening, February 15th, three of us hailed a Karwa cab for a ride from Ezdan to Souq Wakif. Excellent driver. He used the meter and charged us 13.5 riyals. I gave him 20 and thanked him. He deserved the tip. At 8:50pm we hailed a cab on Grand Hamad street. The driver told us 30 riyals and he refused to turn on the meter. We declined the trip. We asked seven additional cabs and all gave us fare quotes from 30 40 riyals. They all refused to use the meter. This is theft from the company as the trips are not recorded. We eventually settled on the last cab and struck a deal for 30 riyals. He informed me that it was policy to charge people this way when leaving Souq Wakif. We also observed drivers refusing to take passengers, in this case a couple with a baby, because the trip was too short. They left this family standing at the curb. They eventually walked away. Please advise me as soon as possible if allowing the drivers to charge a set fare, without using the meter, is company policy.
