Taxi Operators reject 15% far increase


Taxi operators across the island have rejected a 15% fare increase that should have become effective today.

The umbrella group, the Route Taxi Association Alliance, says it will not be encouraging its members to start charging the increased fare amount, as the issue is not yet settled.

The Alliance includes The National Council of Taxi Association (NCOTA), the Route Taxi Association of Jamaica, and the Confederation of Independent Route Taxi Association, (CIRTA).

An overwhelming majority of stakeholders voted to reject the offer at a zoom meeting last night (August 15).
