Taxi Fares

Recommended Posts

REXX

I decided to do a little research about the Taxi Fares. Simply I wanted to find out how much you could actually make on average whilst doing taxi missions. This little test was done over a time period of 30 minutes, travelling at a speed of "just over average AI speeds". Here's what I earned.

 

Fare 1: $243

Fare 2: $296

Fare 3: $50

Fare 4: $185

Fare 5: $369

Fare 6: $184

Fare 7: $240

Fare 8: $345

Fare 9: $159

Fare 10: $205

Fare 11: $321

 

So my total earnings during the 30 minutes are: $2697

 

In your opinion, do you think its worth the 30 minutes of Taxi driving for that kind of amount? I will say, if you floor it, you may possibly get around about $3500 - $4000.

in short, no. The only thing in this game that's worth it, money-wise, is heists or raping the stock market with the assassination missions.

I've built up about 50Mil using the stock market with Franklin and about 30 with Michael, before even doing the first heist. I tried doing taxi missions to get some cash, but it just wasn't working, and i got bored of it.

I Dont think its worth doing taxi runs. Atleast until you done enough heists to get a bit a money, its better then doing tons of taxi runs.

Yeah, things are expensive in this game. Take when you die for instance, 5000 dollars just for the hospital fee.

 

You'd need to do 30+ minutes with the Taxi missions just to earn enough for your hospital bill. Modding any car to the max is around 200 k as well. So the Taxi Missions don't give you enough money, really.

5000 Is the max fee for the hospital, you get a lower fee when you have less money. you can earn thousands just from waiting. (Income by owned property's) taxi runs are pretty much pointless unless your early in the game when you have little money. But why would you need money, since you have so much money from heists. pretty much the only thing you cant buy is the golf club. man, that place costs alot.

Oh, I have 2.1 billion for each character (The money cap) so I always thought when you die it was 5000 dollars. My bad.

 

I also own all the properties, etc. The income isn't bad, but it's nothing special, imo. When I earn money from owned properties, my money stays where it is as it can't go any higher lol
