Taxis and passengers prefer negotiating prices over using taxi meters when travelling across provinces. However, taxis operating in the seven provinces must use meters. The update will be official on Saturday after being published in the Royal Gazette on Friday, June 10, according to DLT Director-General, Chirute Visalachitra.
The change is intended to boost competition in the taxi industry following the use of private cars for the popular ride-hailing taxi services like Grab.
