The ministry of Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation is urging taxi drivers to refrain from refusing to provide discounts to beneficiaries of the taxi fare assistance.

The call comes after some taxi drivers were reported to be charging normal fare from senior citizens and the disabled who qualify for 20 percent discount.

 “The Ministry is still receiving complaints that some taxi drivers are refusing to provide 20 percent discount to bonafide card holders. The Ministry is calling on taxi drivers to comply with this agreement or else we will be left with no choice but to take this matter further to LTA,” Permanent Secretary, Govind Sami said.

Sami also clarified that Fiji Taxi Association has entered into an agreement with Government to provide 20 percent discount on taxi fare for disabled persons and senior citizens.

“Red ID cards have been issued to disabled persons and yellow ID Cards have been given to senior citizens. These current ID Cards are sufficient proof for the individuals to access the 20 percent discount on taxi fares. The discount on taxi fare is up to 20 kilometers of the distance travelled,” he added.
