Taxi rates in the Philippines
Most taxis in the Philippines have Meters to calculate the final charge based on distance traveled and time spent waiting.
These rates vary a bit in some areas, but one of the worst examples I can compare is this:
Two separate one kilometre trips:
Mall of Asia to Sea Residences – cost 70 pesos
Angeles City, Pampanga:
SM Clark to Teodoro Street – cost 350 pesos. And they showed me the chart stating the minimum taxi fare for the area. It said 350 pesos.
How much are the normal metered rates?
In 2010 the official Taxi rate for Metro Manila was
P40.00 for first 500 metres
P3.50 per 300metres
P3.50 for every 2minutes waiting time
That source shows no rates for taxis and I wonder if taxi rates are regulated in every part of the Philippines or not.
