I only hope more and more people including Thais use "grab" an app that has taken over "Uber".......If you come to Pattaya I suggest you download this app from Google play store for android users or the apple app.

Although not a lot of experience with taxis in Pattaya, I once walked out of View Talay 6 and made a left turn and started looking for baht bus with driver only because it was Hot and I wanted to sit up front and pay for trip to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital which I believe always cost me 100 baht. Taxis lined up in front of Central Festival . One driver spotted me and asked where I was going. He told me 100 baht . I said ok. Funny thing he had been sitting in the Hot Sun for so long the AC was slow to be any good. I'd have been better off finding the empty baht bus with driver only where A/C was running.

My only experience with crooked Taxi Mafia in Pattaya.

100 Baht sounds reasonable for a starter.
