Effective Sunday, August 25, 2013, there will be an increse in Route Taxi fares. The new fares are to be calculated on the following basis:

Base rate - $82.50 (moved from $66.00)
Distance per kilometer - $4.50 (moved from $3.60)

 

Example of calculation:

Distance - 24 Km

Base rate = $82.50 + 24 x $4.50

= $82.50 + $108.00 = $190.50
