HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — The Vinasun taxi company on May 15 increased its fares from between VND400-500 (US$1.84-2.3 cents) per kilometre.

Other taxi companies operating, including Mai Linh, Hoang Long and 27/7 are also planning to adjust their fares, but are waiting for verification from relevant agencies.

The increase is expected to be between VND500 to 1,000 (2.3- 4.6 cents) per kilometre.

Ta Long Hy, chairman of the HCM City Taxi Association, said many members were keen to raise fares following an increase in global prices. — VNS
