Public Transport - TAXI – The Auto-Door

I remembered the first time I saw the auto-door of the taxi, was from the Japanese Drama series. Seeing the lady lead raised her hand to hire a taxi, the door was opened when the taxi stopped for her to aboard.

Then, it happened in Singapore too, which only part of it. Now, we can see almost every taxi will have an “Auto-door” sticker sticks on the door but never did I
experience a single time that it really open automatically (perhaps I am not lucky enough to see that happen to me). Not even when my hands were full of bags.

Of course, I doesn’t mean that every single passenger will need the taxi to activate the auto-door cos we are still so used to open it ourselves. But under what situation will they help to ‘open’ the door, I wonder sometime?????? I believe there must be someone there who had experience the ‘open sesame’. Quick, share with me. Let me believe their auto-doors do functioning and not only with the sticker on it.

Hi Etel, I guess yr experience proved tat we still so use to opening the door ourselves. I wonder when will be the day tat all Singapore cabs (driver) will activate the auto-door.
