Official Denies Taxi Fare Rumor

THE head of the city's transport watchdog, Sun Jianping, yesterday denied a rumor taxi fares would rise.

Sun stressed a public hearing would always be held before any decision to raise taxi fares.

According to the rumor, the taxi fare for the first 3 kilometers would be raised from 12 yuan (US$1.84) to 15 yuan.

Sun did say the government is mulling a plan to lower the monthly dues taxi companies are allowed to collect from cabbies. The concern is to ease soaring work pressure on cabbies due to fuel price hikes.
