The Canberra Times informs us that Canberra’s already ruinously expensive taxis are going to get more costly still:
Flagfall for standard hirings will increase to $4.50. The rate per kilometre on weekdays between 6am and 9pm will increase to $1.80. The kilometre rate at other times will increase to $2.07.
It’s a 2.48% raise. Mr Stanhope says it will allow taxi drivers a reasonable income.
