How much does a taxi cost | Difference old and new taxi rates
The old taxi fare consisted of 2 parts: the starting fare and the price per kilometre. The time factor was added in order to divide the costs of a delayed taxi ride more fairly between taxi driver and customer. A taxi ride that takes longer than average (during rush hour for example) now costs a little more. A taxi ride that is faster than average is now slightly cheaper.
