With effect from tomorrow, taxi flag fares go up from 12RMB to 13RMB, plus another 1RMB fuel surcharge. That means the meter shows 14RMB — which works out to be a 16.67% increase — the moment you get in the cab.
Night fares are also up similarly from 16RMB to 18RMB.
Announced today. Done tomorrow. No time to be wasted in allowing the people to grumble.
That’s just how we roll in Shanghai. So suck it up.
