Taxi fare hike endorsed

February 07, 2017

The Chief Executive in Council endorsed a proposal today to increase the flagfall charge for taxis by $2, and the incremental charge per 200 metres by 10 cents.

 

The flagfall charge for the first 2km will rise from $22 to $24 for urban taxis, from $18.50 to $20.50 for New Territories taxis, and from $17 to $19 for Lantau taxis.

 

The incremental charge will rise from $1.60 to $1.70 for urban taxis, from $1.40 to $1.50 for New Territories taxis, and from $1.40 to $1.50 for Lantau taxis.

 

The amendment will be tabled at the Legislative Council on February 15 for negative vetting and is scheduled to take effect on April 9.

 

The Transport & Housing Bureau has considered changes in revenue and operating costs of taxi operators, public acceptability, and the fare differential between taxis and other modes of public transport.
