I think grab taxi makes them self unavailable on purpose, because as soon as you do a grab car there is someone ready instantly haha.

Thanks again for this suggestion, it worked GREAT !!! We walked past a VERY long line, saw a small sign that said it was the place for Seniors, and people with disabilities. I asked if this was the place for seniors to get a taxi. The gal said YES, checked my birth year on my ID, and we got into the very next taxi. Looking at the line I am sure the wait would have been 1 hr 45 plus.

good idea for non seniors is to bring along a cane on your next trip to the airport and limp on over to the dissability line having your wife pulling your luggage.

HaHa...I have a senior friend here in Davao that fakes a limp and always gets the passenger seat in the jeepney...

checked my birth year on my ID

What ID an what birth year were they looking for?  Is everyone over 60 a senior?  Could end up being a very long line if people catch on to that.

I like it when they ask if I am a senior, but no one has ever carded me, so they are being polite.

is the airport bus up and running yet?

Yeah, it has been operating for years now, I use it when I need to transfer terminals at NAIA.

A couple of months ago a taxi driver told me that I could take the Airport Bus to get out of the airport area (I think he said to go to EDSA but my memory is fuzzy on that) and then it is easy to get a taxi.

 

Anyone tried that?

Feb 26..terminal 2.

Had some fool trying to "carry" my bags for me.."hindi, salamat" i said repeatedly as im making my way to the smoking area before grabbing a taxi to the bus station.. Finally the guy says 600 ..haha...i tell him it'll cost me 170 on a meter..he frowns and quickly splits..i walk over to the metered taxis.. Hop in..drive to bus..was wrong..cost 150...so i gave 160..

Total time, less smoking..10 mins.

No line..just straight..

T3 over the last 7 months (4 times) yellow taxis between 6Pm and 9Pm it's a 1 hour + wait, after 11Pm a 5 minute wait...ignore all the touts as you're walking out the door, turn right and join the que, keep ignoring all the touts.

Any picture ID that has your birth date on it that shows you are 60 y/o or older.

Guy in charge of the line told me govt ID. Driver's License would suffice.
