SINGAPORE - ComfortDelGro-owned MaxiCabs will be implementing a surcharge for rides with more than four passengers.
The $3 surcharge, which will come into effect on May 9, will affect each passenger when more than four of them board the cab.
So imagine sharing a MaxiCab with four or more friends. Each of you will have to pay $3 more on top of the total cab fare.
ComfortDelGro did not state a reason for this measure, but said that the surcharge "is not applicable for flat rate transfer services".
According to TODAY, the "boarding fare for MaxiCabs in $3.90, with a 30-cent fare jump for every 400m or less, after the first kilometre up to 10km and every 350m thereafter or less, as well as for every 45 seconds of waiting or less".
The report also added that the current booking fee is $10.
