Commuters who use the Port of Spain to Carenage route will soon have to fork out one dollar more to get to their destination.
This as the Carenage Taxi Drivers’ Association has announced that they will be increasing their fares.
The Association’s president Walter Matthew said the increase is due to the rising cost of living and increasing maintenance costs.
The cost of a trip from the capital city to Carenage and vice versa is currenlty six dollars. Short drops will also cost an additional dollar.
He said fares have not been increased since 2017.
