Radio taxi service introduced in Dibrugarh

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, May 8 � Ajit Singh, State Transport Minister today flagged off a fleet of thirty mini cab radio taxi for the city at the office of the District Transport Office here.

The four plus one seater low cost, taxi is attached with features like GPS system, fare meter with printed bill facility and panic button. This is the first taxi service after Guwahati, the minister said.

For the first 2 kilometres, the charge has been fixed to Rs 30, thereafter Rs 3 per 200 meters (Rs 15/km). The waiting charge has been fixed to Rs 3 for every 5 minutes. The charges from 10 pm to 5 am will be an additional 50 per cent extra. The drivers would wear a yellow uniform.

It may be mentioned here that, people of this premier urban centre in eastern India, have since long been demanding an efficient public transport system to suit its ever-growing needs and inauguration of the radio taxi service is a good beginning in this regard. However, long standing demand of the citizens here for revamping of the city bus service by introducing at least 40 mini buses, particularly by the State run ASTC, have so far fallen on deaf years.
