Budapest Raises Taxi Fares by 10%

Transport

The Municipal Council of Budapest voted on Wednesday to raise regulated taxi fares in the capital by 10% from March 6, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The base fare will be raised from HUF 1,000 to HUF 1,100, the distance-based fare from HUF 400 to HUF 440 per kilometer, and the time-based fare from HUF 100 to HUF 110 per minute.

The motion was justified by citing the elimination of a motor fuels price cap early in December.

The hike was approved unanimously, although council members of the Fidesz-KDNP alliance abstained from the vote.
