There are many ways to get from door to door via taxis or private hire cars (PHCs). Both can be booked through mobile apps or by telephone bookings, while taxis can also be hailed along roads or at designated taxi stands or taxi stops.
Taxi metered fares are calculated based on distance and surcharges may apply. There are no changes to existing fare regulations for street-hail trips. Metered fares will still continue to be charged for street-hail trips.
For ride-hail trips, the new regulations will ensure that licensed ride-hail service operators can continue to offer metered fare trips on taxis. Licensed ride-hail service operators will also be able to independently set fares for ride-hail trips on taxis and PHCs. The flat fare to be charged for taxi and PHC bookings by licensed ride-hail service operators must be indicated clearly within the app and provided upfront to the commuter.
