THE LAND Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will be holding a calibration and resealing of taxi meters on July 31 to ensure accurate fares are charged. “Calibration and Resealing of meters is done to make sure that the fare is in accordance with what the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has set,” the government agency said in a statement on Monday. As of October last year, taxi fares have been adjusted with the flag down rate set at P40, the first kilometer at P13.50, and the per minute travel time is P2. The LTFRB said around 200 taxis will be accommodated at a time for the activity, to be held at the Manila International Airport Authority grounds. — Denise A. Valdez
