The City of Winnipeg would like your opinion on prepaying for taxi rides.
The public is invited to participate in a pilot program which hopes to reduce conflicts between passengers and taxi drivers over fare disputes, the number one concern.
Passengers will pay a portion of their fare upon the taxi’s arrival. The results of the pilot program will determine the amount of that payment. It’ll also help to decide the best days of the week and hours for the prepayment program.
You can submit your opinions in the City’s online survey until June 26, 2019. The results will determine the pilot terms, such as minimum mandatory taxi fees.
