Manila Yellow Airport Taxi

I frequently fly to and from Manila so i often use airport taxis. I’ve tried all of them, from the regular cabs, to the first airport taxi (they call this coupon taxi). Now, they have another type of airport cab that you will see in Naia 2 (centenial airport) and Naia 3.

I call it the Yellow Airport Taxi.

Unlike the coupon taxi where you’ll pay a fixed amount based on where you are headed, the yellow airport taxi’s uses the taxi meter. However, their flag down rate is much higher than regular cabs – P70.00. OUCH!

Then, P4.00 for every drop of the meter. OUCH!

But compared to the coupon cabs… this is much cheaper for me.. But really, the cheapest would have to be the regular cabs. Then just add P50.00 as tip.

I’ve listed down the meter charge from NAIA terminal 2 up to certain parts of the metro – eastern portion.

From NAIA Terminal 2 to:

  • NAIA terminal 3 = 70.00
  • The fort / Market Market =220.00
  • Ortigas (via C5) = 320.00
  • Libis = 330.00
  • SM Marikina = 350.00
  • Riverbanks =370.00
  • Bluewave Marikina = 400.00
  • Parang Marikina = 460.00

If i were to ride a coupon airport taxi going to Marikina, i would have to pay P790.00. Yeah.. double the pay!

Now you know.

  1. Thanks for the information.
    Can I ask which taxi company do you recommend most when GOING to NAIA?

      NANGYARI NA BA ITO SA INYO?

      I always take the yellow airport taxi sa airport when I arrive from a trip. So yun uli ang ginawa ko when we arrived from China. Me and the rest of the Fellas lined up to get our own cabs that would take us home.

      When I got mine, napansin ko na parang hindi naka-ON yung metro ng taxi. So I called the attention of the driver.

      Me: “Kuya, hindi yata naka-ON yung metro nyo”

      DRIVER: “Naka-ON yan, naka-CENTRALIZE na kasi kami”

      Me: “Centralize? paano yun? Paano ko malalaman yung running total nung metro?

      DRIVER: “Malalaman nyo po pagdating na sa destination”

      Hmmmmm…. Medyo shady yata ah… at this point, I texted the rest of the Fellas and asked them kung ganun din ba yung nasakyan nila. Two of them said, hindi raw. At may amount naman yung metro nila. But one said pareho kami ng situation. Kesyo CENTRALIZED ek ek daw.”

      I started asking the driver questions.

      Me: “Paano po naita-transmit yung information ng metro sa office ninyo? May computerized device ba kayo rito? Mala-wireless transmitter? via satelite ba? GPS? (at kung anu-ano na ang sinabi ko)

      And this time, I started texting again, and LOUDLY, I said… “Matanong nga yung Tito ko na taga-Department of Transportation kung totoo nga yang CENTRALIZED thing na yan sa metro nyo”

      TUMAHIMIK YUNG DRIVER.

      and after a few seconds, he pulled over.

      Me: “Kuya, bakit? ano’ng nangyari?

      DRIVER: “Nasiraan yata tayo. Biglang namatay yung makina”

      Me: “Ows? so paano na yan?”

      DRIVER: “Lipat na lang po kayo. Bayaran n’yo na lang po ako ng hanggang dito”

      IRRITATED Me: “Eh paano ko malalaman kung magkano ang babayaran ko eh wala ngang naka-display na amount sa metro ninyo?!”

      At kung talagang walang dubious sa ginagawa niya, I asked, “Bakit po hindi kayo magtawag ng back-up na taxi para may maghatid sa akin? Puwede naman yun di ba?”

      He just said, “Kumuha na lang kayo ng ordinary taxi”

      SO bago ako sumakay sa napara ko, Kinunan ko muna ang plate number ng nasakyan kong yellow airport taxi. The name of the driver is LUIZ nga pala.

      I don’t really know if this system of theirs is legit, but it is really very shady to me. Kung legit man ito, at least they should be able to explain to their passenger properly.

        Plate No. TXS 372 ,Huwag nyo sakyan mga ito mga kasamang OFW / kabarong seaman , tandaan natin sila ..

  2. How safe are these? I heard lots of horror stories where people get robbed or even kidnapped.

  3. Very Safe.
    I ride these taxis every 2 months.

  4. I took a few hours on Google and researching a bit about “Taxi or Cab service” worldwide and the rules that differ from one country to another, the fares, city regulations, and even the danger we all can face at times. But I haven’t found a great resource for “Cab drivers” to share their experiences, tips etc.. if you know of any, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you

This was just today at past 3pm , April 15,2011.

  17. Taxis in the Philipines are regulated yet, implementation of the rules and regulations are not being followed strictly, worst, the monitoring is not consistent.

    Here’s what a Filipino taxi company in London could share when getting a taxi from the airport in Manila

    First time traveller in Manila – get an official airport taxi so that iF something went wrong, you have trails to follow

    Get a reputable taxi company, scout around.

    Get the names, ID of the driver and plate of the car.

    Secure a receipt and booking confirmation.

    You don’t have to tip the driver yet, if you are happy with the service, do so.

    I hope this is helpful.

    If any of you needed a chauffeured taxi in London Heathrow Airport, puwede po kayong mag book sa amin. Google our company for independent reviews. Salamat po.

    Nagbayad kami ng 893 pesos from NAIA 1 to Libis, QC. Wala din resibo binigay ang driver. Too bad I forgot to take down the plate number and body number. At yung NAIA 1 employee na nagturo sa amin kung saan makikita ang Yellow Airport Taxi ay humingi pa ng tip (P20) tsk, tsk. I was just relieved to arrive safely sa apartment. How can we encourage tourists to come when sa airport pa lang ang sama na ng experience? At kahit sa kapwa Pilipino niloloko nila :(

    Buti pa sa amin sa Davao City, kahit piso ang sukli, binabalik sa iyo ng taxi driver. Subukan nila magloko at isusumbong namin sila sa City Hall.

  19. Im dying to complaint the driver of airport taxi from T1 with plate number TYT 521 Metered taxi. Share ko lang ang deal ko is ibaba ako sa megamall dahil nagkainitan na ng ulo between me and the driver sabi nya ksi kung cainta ako pupunta 1,100 ang charge nila so sabi ko huling umuwi ako hangang pasig rainforest 280 lang binayad ko so pag floodway 1,100 agad? E ang lapit na nun and the i remember 670 ang fixed rate nung july na huli akong ng inquire pa floodway cainta kya ngdecide ako na pa rainforest pasig nlng then ngayon gabing to i decided na magpahatid na nga lang sa
    megamall. ..Then suddenly nagbago isipnya
    bumaba nlang daw ako ng taxi at maghanap ng
    iba in the middle of nowhere pababainmo ko ng taxi??? With all my luggage!!!! Ayaw tlga nya ko ihatid sa megamall.. So lumipat ako ng taxi pero ang bastos ng ginawa nya sa pasahero nya!

  20. parang ayaw ko nang magtrabaho sa Manila… the horror stories are just too many from taxi to mandurukot

  21. 1995, I went home to Baliwag and take taxi from Manila International Airport and charge me $60 dollars and for the second time I went home
    again in 2008 and the taxi driver charge me $100 dollars. My only comment is because of increase of living condition of the Filipinos and as
    everything is changing everyday.

  22. how much would it approximately cost from NAIA to Intramuros White Knight hotel?

  23. sa mga nkranas ng ibat-ibang karanasan patungkol sa ating mga pampublikong sasakyan tulad ng mga yellow metered taxi sa airport ay maihahalintulad natin sa isang big oil company na may iregularidad sa papalitpalit ng presyo at hindi estable ang presyo. Sagkat bumabase lamang sa pag gamit ng mga krudo o gasolina ang ating mga pampublikong sasakyan isa na diyan ay ang mga yellow metered taxi… kung may iba pang katanungan ay maaaring makipag ugnayan sa numerong ito# 09233314759/09082070695 upang mabigyan kayo ng maayos at magandang serbisyo maraming salamat po!!!!

  24. how much it will cost me for a taxi ride from airport terminal 1 to cavite dasmarinas?

  25. Manuel Donato Jr.

    Im Jun, i arrived at terminal 3 at about 2:30 (April 8, 2012),i take the yellow cab with 70.00 as the plug down going to de castro, the amount to pay is 280 plus i mistakenly paid the driver a 50 singapore dollar because i thought it is a thousand pesos bill iI even ask the driver to take 350 and ask for my change, for me it is not the money that counts but the honesty of the driver , how can we trust our own Filipino driver taking advantage of the passenger, for your information and guidance, and can you please email me the contact numbers of your company. Thank you

    My daughter took a yellow taxi ride (plate no. TXS 179) early this morning (Wednesday, September 12, 2012) from PAL domestic airport to Taft Avenue and was charged P474.00 for the trip. Worse was, when she took a look at the receipt, it was dated July 4, 2012. Wala na talagang matino na taxi driver sa Manila.

  35. how much will it cost me for a ride from terminal2 to imus,cavite?

  36. how much is from manila T1 to dimaond hotel?

  37. normal Taxi rate T1 to Diamond Hotel via Roxas Blvd is 150 or 200 max. but kung taripahan ang basehan, mga 250 siguro ang charge using yellow airport taxi.

    yung mga Taxi sa Int’l Airport (especially yellow cab) may taripa yan…pinapakita sa mga pasajero kung magkano ang babayaran to a certain location. at fix yun, di pwedi dagdagan ng driver ang rate along the way. tapos bibigyan ka ng stub pag nag ‘oo’ ka destination rate. pag wala ganun move on. konting scrutiny lang kasi may mga opportunista talaga.

    sa Old domestic terminal…d masyado regulated ang taxi rate jan..kasi pag strikto ang airport guard sa labas, yung taxi lang na may mga pasajero ang pinapasok diretso sa may looban at bawal silang mag sakay ng pani-bagong pasajero, kasi may pila ang empty taxi na nag-nanais kumuha ng pasajero sa old domestic. ang rate nga lang jan is mostly “usapan” style. lalong “usapan” style pag sa may labasan ka na kukuha ng Taxi. but note, meron at meron kang makukuhang matinong driver na walang tanong-tanong, baba agad ang metro pag upo mo.

    sa NAIA-2 at NAIA-3, may taripa din ang mga yellow taxi, pati na yung ibang taxi line na pumipila.

    for Secured taxi service outside the airport, MGE, EMP, R&E, Taxi’s are tested. May iba pa, but di ko kabisado ang line. Secure to sila, maliban na lang kung na commandeered ang taxi. but unlikely kasi may mga radio ang mga taxi na ito. kung matino naman siguro ang driver, the moment na ma agaw sa kanya ang taxi, mag report agad yan sila sa control center.

    sa mga hold-up, snatching at pang-gogoyo naman, nasa atin yan. maraming talagang opportunista kahit saang lupalop ng mundo. Malaysia has also the same modus when it comes to taxi. ingat lang at konting alisto. i am also from the visayas province, but since my travel sa manila way back late 80′s (college days) and up to this time, never pa naman may nagyari sa akin na ganun.

    don’t hesitate or be shy to ask around, especially to known frequent travelers or read blogs like this, etc. just to be inform

    tsaka in situation na in-doubt ka, try to challenge the person. a good example is my experience. pumara ako ng taxi at nagka sundo kami sa destination, nung pa upo na ako, sabi ng driver “sir, magkano bigay mo?” sabi ko metro tayo. sabi niya “e sira sir eh” na sense ko na ang maging next line niya, which is asking for a higher rate….ang nangyari, in a polite way, sabi ko sa driver, bossing pagawa mo muna ang metro mo para walang hassle sayo at sa pasajero mo. sabay bumaba na ako sa taxi na iyon.

    yun lang po. always a safe trip to all of us

  38. BODY#AO47 FROM N1 to las pinas city hall 952 pesos grabee nman grrrr tinanong q ung driver bakit ganun inabot samantalang nag start sa 70 pesos meter,nakipagtalo pa aq kz lagi nman aq sumasakay sa yellow taxi from N2 eh wala pang 500 nabayaran q..sinasamantala tlaga nila porke alam nila hndi aq baba2 kz 11 na po ng gabi un…hndi nakapagtataka palapag pa lng ng N1 super na ang advice ng ibang lahi na mag ingat dahil maraming manloloko sa N1 kasama na mga metered taxi raw at safe ang galing nilang mag alok..un ba ang safe????

  39. yellow cab taxi TXS 352 last night from naia terminal 2 to old domestic airport charged us 250 pesos ng gusto ko tingnan sa meter na i reset na raw niya ask ko ang receipt ayaw magbigay, nakipagtalo ako, later 150 na lang daw kasi ang tagal daw niya nakapila sa terminal inadvice pa niya na sana sa ibang taxi na lang kami sumakay.ito ang klase ng mga driver na nakakasira ng reputasyon ng taxi company at lahing pinoy attn. mr. taxi driver buti naa-atim mong pakainin ang pamilya mo galing sa ganitong klase mapasamantalang pinagkikitaan.

  40. Hi. So this blog was back in 2009 I take it. I’m from Marikina and I’m coming home for the holidays (Christmas til New years 2013). I just want to ask how much is taxi fare from NAIA to Marikina now. Thanks!

    • Hi Judy, its 400-450 pesos

      • Hi thanks for the response! Ask ko lang ulit, is that amount for Yellow Airport Taxi or regular taxi? My husband and his buddy are with me (they’re both white) and they both have their sports equipment with them aside from my baby which I will also bring along a car seat and of course our luggages. I’ve read here different bad experiences at ang dami pa sa ibang blogs so ngayon pa lang kinakabahan na ako at baka kahihiyan lang naghihintay sa akin. So there’s a probability na the taxi driver would ask extra charge since we got so many stuff with us. How much do you think is the reasonable amount if in case the driver ask for it? Hindi ko na kasi alam ang presyuhan sa atin kung gano na kataas. Mabuti kung beforehand sabihin na agad ang presyo paano na kung sa kalagitnaan ng byahe saka kami tagain sa presyo? Or kung i-metro nga pero me daya naman “batingting” ba tawag dun. There are so many scenarios I’m imagining right now and I’m getting all stressed out. I know there are honest drivers out there too pero ang konti lang nila for sure and there’s no guarantee we’ll end up with a trustworthy one. I’m debating with myself now which taxi service should we use. Would a coupon taxi be better as opposed to getting a regular taxi? Thanks!

  41. Judy, there are 3 types of taxis at the airport
    1. Regular
    2. Yellow
    3. Coupon.

    If you use the the coupon taxi you’ll pay around Php700 (to marikina) but you will use a tamaraw FX or a van type of taxi – this is the best option if you say na may equipment kayong dala.
    Kasi yung yellow taxi, puro mga cars lang yun baka mahirpan kayo sa paglagay ng mga gamit.
    As to the tip, i normally give Php 50. But siguro in your case, gawin mo nalang Php100 or kahit 200 siguro. Pero not more than that.

    • Hi. Thanks a lot for a very detailed info. Now I know what to do.

    • Hi. So, nag coupon taxi kmi. Graaabeee ang presyuhan nila ginto! From T3 lang to FB Harrison sa Mabuhay Manor siningil na kmi agad ng Php1,200. Then from T3 to Marikina 1,700. Tapos nun I contacted the people that assisted my husband pra ihatid kmi ulit airport. Pagdating ng T4 2k na singil! They didn’t mention that there’s another pick up fee of 300 aside from their 1700 fixed rate pag Marikina! Sobrang taga inabot nmin!!!

  42. ano angpinakasafe na taxi from naia terminal 1 to manila malapit sa sm manila? pinakasafe daw sabi ang coupon taxi – magkano po kaya ito?

    • Safe naman yung mga airport taxi’s. Pero yung ayaw natin is yung nananamantala sa presyuhan. “Nananaga” ika nga. Mas mahal ang coupon taxi kesa sa yellow taxi.

  43. Hi, gs2 ko din mag inquire kng pano ba natin mkikita na legitimate ung metered taxi? dami kasing ngrereklamo, my mapapayo ba kayong safety guide… ask lng po kasi pauwi din ako, at mga 1am ang dating sa terminal at nagplplanong magtaxi lng.. Naia 1 to SM Sn LAzaro. salamat

  55. Now in this era you can experience improved airport transportation service at different airports of the world. I found London Airport Taxi the best among them.

  56. hi anyone knows how much is the taxi fare from NAIA 1 to terminal 3,its either yellow cab or the coupon taxi or etc.????

  57. I’ve used the yellow taxi from T3 to the Victory Liner terminal in Pasay City along EDSA several times between 2010 – 2012 and found it really efficient and a lot safer compared to when I used to take taxis from T1. I even commented on how it is less stressful now and made recommendations to fellow travelers. But these were during the times when I would arrive in Manila during daytime. I may be arriving this time during midnight at T1 and from reading some of the comments here and other sites, using taxis from there now appears to be a scary prospect. Umuuwi po ako sa Pampanga and I find it convenient, and cheaper by 90%, to take the bus and taxi, rather than renting a car for airport hatid or sundo. I do not have much luggage either so a large vehicle is not a must. Until the last taxi ride I took when I left Feb this year, I paid the usual taxi fare of P200 only (including tip). I am used to traveling alone, here and abroad, but this time I am having second thoughts whether it would be wiser to just spend a bit more if coming out of T1 at midnight might mean meeting unscrupulous drivers, which would just make me mad, and would make me feel even worse. :) What would you advise? Thanks

    • HI Meriam, if you are coming from T1, then the taxi driver knows that you came from abroad. It is still better to take the bus to Pampanga – cheaper and safer. But if you would like to try to use a cab going to Pampanga, here are my Tips:
      1. dress down. don’t wear super fancy clothes.
      2. Make the driver realize that this is not the first time that you took a cab to pampanga.

  59. Hi guys,
    We are heading to manila in two days, and have to take a cap to bus terminal cubao, possibly in the evening. We have a double surfboard bag. After reading all the scary stories about taxi drivers in manila I wanted to inform myself how much approx it should cost a ride from airport to cubao. How much they might charge for a surfing bag?

    Thanks a lot,

    Ewa

    • Hi Eva. Since you have surfboard bags, DONT get the Yellow taxi. Get the white airport service (vans). You’ll see them immediately when exiting the airport. Then say that you’ll be going to Cubao.it should be less than 1k pesos. just give a tip to the driver (200 is ok). If they say there’s an additional, fee aside from the base fare and the tip, you tell them “according to my friend from LTO, I should only pay the base fare and give a good tip”. They’ll get scared if you tell them that.

  60. Last Friday, My mother and my auntie ride a taxi from victory liner pasay to NAIA 1, then when they arrived at NAIA 1 my mother paying the taxi driver with 200 pesos, but doesn’t accept the payment because the fare cost 500 pesos. So I ask them that if they ask the driver to plug the taxi meter, my mother said no, my mother said “charge to experience”. But when they are going back to victory liner they ride again a metered taxi, so they ask the driver to plug down the taxi meter, so the taxi driver plug down his taxi meter, but when the taxi is already near the pasay victory liner, the taxi meter jump from 300 to 900 pesos, by my auntie came from Kuwait saw the driver pushes a button under the his seat, but they choose not to argue with the taxi driver, because they are ladies riding the taxi. Here is the taxi’s plate number – A-115 yellow cab.
