Benz Taxi in Shanghai

Hey. Take a look. I finally saw and took a shot of the hot Benz taxi in Shanghai. It is reported that 50 Benz taxi were put into operation but I never seen one.

This morning, when I arrived at Metro Tower, a shining car passed by. It was a Benz. At a second look, I realized it was a taxi.

    There’s plenty of Mercedes Benz taxis in my neighbourhood (Jing’an) and yes, you can flag them down, and yes they do cost the same as Santanas. So I suggest you do what I did, and ride one immediately while they’re still in good shape.

    Yea I tried to call in and one to Pudong airport but the girl on the phone was like “OK I have Santana 2000, good for 4 people. What is your address.”…..err she didn’t get the message. Easier just to flag one down duh.

    Rogi, they didn’t give you a Benz as you asked? I guess they are too busy handling customers on the street, and maybe sometime handling conflicts between two customers stuggling for the same Benz. :-D

    That’s too bad Goose. When I was in Shanghai and travelled towards the airport to go on a little trip to Sanya, we also had a Benz. They’re really comfortable.

    By the way, speaking of cabs… Aren’t all cabs (the volkwagens at least) going to be replaced for new Audi’s in 2008? I heard something about that a while ago.
