All information on fare rates, surcharges and fees payable for the journey must be specified to commuters upfront, before commuters accept the dispatched taxi. These include the flag-down fare, the distance and time rates, the booking fee charged by the service provider, and where applicable, peak period and location surcharges. Alternatively, third-party taxi booking services can provide commuters with the option to set their user preferences to automatically reject certain types of taxis or taxis with certain fare rates and surcharges. To ensure that taxi services remain equally accessible to all members of the public, bidding and pre-trip tipping for taxi services are not allowed. In addition, the booking fees charged by third-party taxi booking services cannot exceed the booking fees charged by taxi companies.
