The Greencab Taxi Association in Wynberg along with the Mowbray Taxi Association (MTA) are offering a standard R10 fare for anyone travelling between Wynberg and the Cape Town CBD from Friday to Sunday.
Greencab spokesperson Amien Carlsen says taxi drivers have been hit hard by recent fuel hikes and have been receiving complaints from customers about the resultant fare increase.
“Every time the petrol went up, all of us were affected and about three weeks ago we had to increase our fares from R14 to R18,” he says.
“Die mense het baie complain because everyone is struggling and as taxi drivers we discussed it amongst each other (Commuters are complaining a lot because everyone is struggling and as taxi drivers we discussed it amongst each other.) ”
