Estimated Taxi fares in GTA

Does this website give an accurate estimate of taxi fares


(I see another similar site was removed from the Travel Guide because it significantly under estimated fares.)

From the airport, no, because it doesn't use the regulated flat rates ($53 + tip to most of downtown, full map at torontopearson.com/WorkArea/… ).

For other trips within the City of Toronto, I just tried it and found its estimates are a little high on a pure distance basis. But with light traffic, stops at red lights, etc., there will be some "waiting time" charges as well, so it could end up being reasonably accurate.

Can't say for the rest of the GTA, since every municipality sets its own taxi fares.
