20% taxi fare hike approved
30 August 2018 | Transport
This led to several stand-offs with the police including a strike in April leading to 40 taxis being impounded. NTTU chief, Werner Janaurie, in his claims for 50%, has repeatedly threatened to sue the government.
At this afternoon’s announcement, Januarie walked out.
The Namibia Bus and Taxi Association (Nabta) distanced itself from the 50% hike demand and aligned itself with the 20% increase.
This is the first fare increase since 2009 when fares were hiked from N$9 to N$10.
