Want to Know How Taxi Rates Are Determined?
A charge will not take into account distance traveled. This charge is set, and when a taxi driver switches on their meter, the counter will display the starting point from first use. Then, the next stage in calculating rates by time and mileage. The reason why time is calculated is because not all taxis take the same time to get to their destinations. Heavy traffic is another factor, which is why there could be a charge per minute.
Generally, the rates are calculated for minutes and distance traveled. If the ride takes longer than was expected, charges per minute may be reassessed. If your ride is relatively short, you could pay the usage fee and the mileage one; however, you may not be charged for time.
