Daily News reported that the Thai public are resigned to accepting the fare hike of 10% for using taxis even though they are angry at not having been consulted.

But in a vox pop survey they have said: 

Fine…..but don’t blame us when we use Grab!

Daily News said their survey showed that Thais were fed up with taxis and most don’t agree with the fare increases. 

They say that their service is not worth it……if you can call it a service. 

It is not safe, the drivers are rude and throw in the constant refusals to take passengers where they want to go and the rip-offs experienced by both locals and tourists and you have only one answer….

We’re turning to Grab. And don’t blame us!

Transport minister Saksayam Chidchob was all smiles with the taxi drivers this week as he announced the new measures. 

He also said that he was speeding up the full legalization of services like Grab. 

Flag fall is to remain the same at 35 baht but fares will go up about 10% with a 20 baht increase in the airport surcharge in Bangkok.
