taxi vs shuttle bus transfer from universal studios

does anyone have an idea on how easy/difficult it is to get taxis from universal? im travelling with a senior citizen and im wondering whether it would be better to pre-arrange for shuttle bus transfers instead of taking the taxi by ourselves.

we're considering the distance to walk, whether entrance/exit is farther from taxi or from the shuttle bus. we're also considering whether it might be difficult to get a taxi when the park closes at 6pm when most everyone else will be heading out too.

would appreciate any comment or feedback about this. thanks in advance.

Taxi pick up and drop off or universal is from the basement carpark of Resort World. There is a shuttle between Resort World and Universal Studios. I imagine there will be a fleet of taxis waiting to pick up fares as there is a $3 surcharge (like trips from the Airport) and a potential large tip from those who got lucky at the Casino.

thanks, that's good to know...now i just hope that the driver will not expect any "potential large tip" from a non-gambler like me lol

As far as I know, it is not customary to tip taxi drivers in Singapore and extra charges are made transparent on the fare screen.
