SMRT raising fares of some taxis today


That is right. Apparently, SMRT is raising taxi fares today, according to a report in the Straits Times. According to the report:

Taking a ride in an SMRT taxi could cost a third more from Monday.

In the latest series of taxi fare changes, SMRT Corp is upping the flagdown fares of all its Chevrolet Epica cabs to $3.60.

Distance fares of its Mercedes-Benz, London, Hyundai Starex and Ssangyong Rodius cabs go up to 30 cents for every 400m travelled for up to 10km, every 350m after 10km and 45 seconds of waiting time.

Previous rates were $3.40 and 22 cents respectively.

It would not be so bad if they raised taxi prices but unfortunately, their service is just as shitty. Many of their cabbies pick and choose and trying to get a cab sometimes is hell. I for one do not share SMRT’s enthusiasm about raising taxi fares without any corresponding rise in service levels
