My elderly mother was at Belconnen Mall a few days ago, and after missing her bus home became a little overwhelmed by the heat and decided to get a taxi home.
The taxi was from the mall to Flynn and she was charged $70. I don’t travel very often by taxi myself, but know that this fare must be a lot more than it should be.
We’ve suggested she take a taxi whenever she feels the need, but in her two years in Australia this is the first time she has felt she had to. She’s on a UK pension which equates to around $270 a week, so I can’t see this episode pursuading her to use cabs more often. I have emailled Canberra Elite to politely enquire how this fare could have been charged, but have had no reply.
Anywhere else I can pursue this?
