Just in case you still didn’t know, the re-calibration of taxis in Cagayan de Oro City have already began in accordance to Memorandum Circular 2017-026 or the Implementing Guidelines For Calibration And Sealing/Resealing Of Taxi Meter For 2017 Fare Adjustment issued by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).
As shown below, the flag down rate of P40 has been retained but with the new adjusted rate of a P13.50 per kilometer traveled, and a P2 per minute of total travel time.
As observed, there’s no more rate for waiting time. By the way, only taxi cabs with the re-calibrated meters can collect the new higher rates. Further, prior to calibration and sealing/resealing of the meter, taxi units must be equipped with GNSS receiver, free Wi-Fi, CCTV with continuous recording of past 72 hours of operation and dashboard camera and online digital platforms in compliance with the PUV Modernization Program and Department Order 2017-011 or the Omnibus Guidelines on the Planning and Identification of Public Road Transportation Services and Franchise Issuance. See schedule of re-calibration below.
Accordingly, the implementation of the re-calibration of taximeters was delayed due to the late issuance of the said guidelines.
