City mulls higher taxi fares and fuel surcharge

Shanghai plans to raise taxi fares and introduce a fuel surcharge to cope with higher petro prices, the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission said today. In one proposal, the flag-down rate will increase by one yuan to 13 yuan but the standard rate after the first three kilometers will remain at 2.4 yuan/km. In another, the starting flag-down rate will remain unchanged but the standard rate after the first three kilometers will rise to 2.7 yuan/km. The fuel surcharge will be 2 yuan per trip under current gas prices. A public hearing on the proposals will be held on June 13, the commission said.
