I am wondering if some of you guys might know what the difference is between the one colored taxi and the two colored taxi in Bangkok. Is it different ownership or what is it??

 

Happy for your input guys...

What I read is that the green/yellow taxis are privately owned, driven by "owner" (bought on finance).

Somewhat plausible as during holidays I always see some Bangkok taxis parked in the neighborhood here in the village.

 

Other taxis belong to companies that rent them on a day to day basis to drivers.

The drivers pay a fixed amount per shift/day and cash in the fares for themselves.

 

I might stand corrected, just what I remember having read.

First link if you Google it:

https://www.amusingplanet.com/2014/03/bangkoks-multi-colored-taxis.html

The single-color are company taxis, personal taxis in cooperation or alliance and rental company taxis. These color include bright green, bright sky blue, red, orange, yellow, blue, pink, purple, violet and tan. The bi-colored taxis are in 3 kinds including yellow-green, red-blue and yellow-orange. The yellow-green are the personal private taxi. The red-blue are the rental taxi. The yellow-orange are the company taxi.

Bangkok’s taxis are actually color coded. The single-color are company taxis, personal taxis in cooperation or alliance and rental company taxis. These color include bright green, bright sky blue, red, orange, yellow, blue, pink, purple, violet and tan. The bi-colored taxis are in 3 kinds including yellow-green, red-blue and yellow-orange. The yellow-green are the personal private taxi. The red-blue are the rental taxi. The yellow-orange are the company taxi.

 

What a great 5-year old link!  According to that garbage, "The single-color are company taxis, personal taxis in cooperation or alliance and rental company taxis".

 

It then goes on to contradict itself with..."The yellow-green are the personal private taxi. The red-blue are the rental taxi. The yellow-orange are the company taxi".

 

So the personal taxis, rental taxis and company taxis are single colour and also bi-colour!  Brilliant.

Tan colour Taxi's are dirty White ones, or very old + the Sun has done its work
