Not sure why this crops up in my mind every so often, but I wonder if we were taxi cheated the time before when we were in Sydney. We were certainly cheated last time using the airport train. Only local knowledge can tell me. I was chatting to a Thai businessman a good while ago. I realised he had been taxi ripped off big time for his trip from Melbourne Airport to his city hotel.
We caught the cab in Darlinghurst Road in the Cross at the south facing rank to go to the airport.
I thought we would turn right into William Street, right into Bourke Street and then into the tunnel to get to the airport.
Instead the driver turned right into Victoria Street, probably right to get to Macleay Street and then Wylde Street and Cowper Wharf Roadway and maybe up Bourke Street or onto the Cahill Expressway, where I see there are tolls. I think it was Bourke Street though.
Waddya reckon Sydneysiders?
