多伦多一名教师Megan Schroeder说,她差点就把她的行李放进一辆出租车的后背箱里,一名警察拦住了她…

“这是一辆非法出租车,他们会偷你的东西,”她记得警察是这么对她说的。Schroeder原以为那是一辆合法的出租车。

GTA机场的无证出租车问题已经存在了很久。

如何认准合法出租

大多伦多机场管理局(GTAA)表示,因为乘客的安全是机场最为注重的事情,所以他们会通过雇用私人警卫,增强公众教育来让广大乘客避免乘坐无证出租车。

依据GTAA的官网,机场的合法出租车要符合以下条件:
1. 只会从指定地点拉客
2. 保险杠上会有GTAA的车号牌,窗户上有贴纸
3. 车内会有统一的费用说明
4. 不会在航班终点或停车场拉客

皮尔区警方发言人Bally Saini说,这种情况每天都会发生。乘坐无证出租车会有以下问题。第一,如果遇到事故,驾车者可能没有涵盖到乘客的保险。第二,驾车者可能会偷走乘客的行李。所以乘坐无证出租车是非常危险的。

GTAA雇用私人警卫,试图消除皮尔逊机场非法出租车问题,警方也与他们一道,分发警告通知。

Schroeder说,要不是警察,她都不知道会遭遇到什么。

她表示,虽然差点受骗的经历挺尴尬,但是她还是想将自己的故事讲出来,防止更多人受骗。

Megan Schroeder, a teacher in Toronto, said she almost put her luggage in the back box of a taxi and a policeman stopped her…

“This is an illegal taxi. They will steal your stuff,” she remembered as she said to her. Schroeder thought it was a legal taxi.

The issue of unlicensed taxis at GTA Airport has been around for a long time.

How to look for legal rental

The Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) stated that because the safety of passengers is the airport’s most important thing, they will increase the public education by hiring private guards to allow passengers to avoid taking unlicensed taxis.

According to GTAA’s official website, the legal taxis at the airport must meet the following conditions:
1. Only to solicit from designated locations
2. There will be a GTAA number plate on the bumper and a sticker on the window
3. There will be a uniform fee description in the car
4. Will not solicit at the end of the flight or in the parking lot

Peel District police spokesman Bally Saini said that this situation will happen every day. There are the following problems with unlicensed taxis. First, if an accident occurs, the driver may not cover the passenger’s insurance. Second, motorists may steal passengers’ luggage. So taking a taxi without a license is very dangerous.

GTAA hired private guards to try to eliminate the illegal taxis at Pearson Airport. The police also accompanied them to issue warning notices.

Schroeder said that if it wasn’t for the police, she didn’t know what to expect.

She said that although the experience of being cheated was very good, she still wanted to tell her story and prevent more people from being deceived.
