19th October 2006 we called a taxi from this company in Petone and asked to be taken the 9km to Aotea Quay Ferry Terminal. There was one adult, one 8y.o. and 2 infants with three bags. The driver demanded $45.00 for a $25.00 trip. There was no time to argue as the kids were out and going. The taxi federation said it was exorbitant and the company said that it was their shcedule rate. Rip-off!
