Taxi centers have resumed service with increased fares proposed by taxi centers after organizing a protest and halting their services.
The taxi centres claim that no official response was received from the Transport Ministry despite submitting the proposal to increase the fares. Their main demands are expediting the process of installing taximeters and increasing the price of taxi fares until the meters are installed.
According to the taxi centers that organized the protest, the decision to increase the fares was taken during a meeting held by all the taxi centers after ending the protest today. Moreover, taxi fares will be displayed on all taxis from now on, therefore, the customer can opt for the service if they approve the fare for their destination.
Transport Ministry has stated that the discussions were underway with stakeholders regarding the matter, and they would try to give a definite response by this Sunday.
