“The expanding is too extreme and difficult to deal with. It was RM 22 to go from Petaling Jaya to Subang USJ/1 but now it is RM 40. It is increased about RM 18. Since I am a on a daily basis person along for the ride of cabby since there are no additional public transports available around to make my way to work, how I will survive with this far above the ground price tag of cabby? “Mr. Nallasivam shed tears.
“We will not eavesdrop to the Cabinet’s directive to set off the fare slog announced by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) to an anon date. This is not a political subject but it is all about cabbies wellbeing. We do have families. Who is going to provide for and be concerned of our families other than us? This is likelihood for us to take home a tiny small piece extra capital for our family’s well being. And it has nothing to do with the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST),” articulates Metered Taxi Drivers Task Force chairman Amran Jan.

Increasing RM 3.80 for 10 KM is to cover up the price tag of vehicle safeguarding, even since the proclamation of incensement a further 85 % of taxi drivers to change the new meters at a cost of RM 110.
