Metered taxi services will be introduced in Yangon on 1 April, according to a report in Myawady Daily yesterday.
“The metered taxis will charge Ks300 per kilometre and an additional Ks1,300 as service fees. The time spent in traffic jams and at traffic signals will not be considered while calculating the fare,” said Ko Lin, founder of Kilometre Taxi.
“We have launched the service to set a fair price rate for both cab drivers and passengers. We have been running the service on a trial basis, since the second week of March. By 1 April, Kilometre Taxi stickers will be pasted on member taxi cabs. The fare list will be available in the cabin. For the security of passengers, every taxi will be registered,” said Ko Lin.
The group has 127 taxis and has planned to launch the service on 1 April with 150 taxis.
“Cabbies registered with the group have to present copies of their national identity cards, household registration certificates, wheel tax certificates and driving licences,” said Ko Lin.
