As the government increased the fuel quota for three wheelers, they should take action to implement the rule to display the taxi fare while making it easy to regulate the service, the All-Island Three-Wheeler Drivers’ Union (AITWDU) said.
AITWDU President Lalith Dharmasekera told the Daily Mirror that passenger three-wheeler drivers are satisfied with the recent fuel quota increase.
“The three-wheeler driver should clearly display the rates he uses to charge from the passengers. This is the time to make such rule to make taxi service a reality. “They should also comply with the rules for displaying the taxi logo,” he said.
In addition to that, the government should take measures to register the three-wheeler drivers who are engaged in serving passengers.
A hired three-wheeler driver runs a maximum of 150 km per day consuming 10 litres of gasoline.
However, on the day when the government will be able to provide 30 litres of petrol, the Three-Wheeler Drivers’ Union will consider reducing taxi fares in comparison to the petrol price at that time, Dharmasekera said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
