    I have a common problem with all of these metered taxis, when going to the airport they dont give out flat rates, specially in rush hours. If they do that will be double the price of regular fare. this is why i always use airport limo taxis @ http://www.airportlimotaxis.ca
    they charge me a flat fee no mater rush hour or early morning. always same price.
