Can someone explain why a passenger in a taxi has to pay for ERP charges?
Why do ERP charges apply to taxis? Sure, those taxis are taking up space on the roads but at the same time they are limiting the amount of people that purchase cars, thus limiting the congestion on Singapore’s roads.
Aren’t taxis considered public transportation in Singapore?
(Note: The Taxicabs of Singapore Wikipedia entry needs to be updated for the rule change where people can’t stop a taxi anywhere on a public road).
