The Route 3 Maxi Taxi Association has finalised a fare increase on the Chaguanas to Port of Spain route to take effect January 1, 2018.
The increase has been adjusted from its original $2 increase to just one dollar.
Th new fare for the full trip is now $7.
Fare increases of one dollar were applied across the board, effective December 4, 2017 following a series of discussions held among the Association's membership after the last fuel price hike announced in the 2017/2018 Budget.
The adjustments were as follows: short drops on the Chaguanas to San Fernando/ Chaguanas to Curepe routes, originally $3, were raised to $4; while the short drop fare on the Chaguanas to Port-of-Spain route remained the same.
The full fare on the Chaguanas to Port-of-Spain route was initially increased by $2 (from $6 to $8), while the Chaguanas to Curepe fare moved from $6 to $7 and on the Chaguanas to San Fernando route, the fare was raised by $1 ($10 to $11).
The latest adjustment to take effect January 1, 2018 applies only to the Chaguanas to Port of Spain route. All other fare increases which came into effect December 4, 2017 remain unchanged.
