Taxi drivers are getting a raise. The government-controlled fare is going up 1 percent.
That translates to 5 colons more for the first kilometer, from 585 to 590. The new rate will be about $1.18.
Taxi drivers in the orange airport fleet will get a raise of 5 colons only on the second and subsequent kilometers, said the Authoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos.
