Changes resulting from the new Law Amendment
Are the fares going to stay the same?
According to the Act, it is necessary to make many changes, which involve a considerable financial burden. To mention a random example – to issue one licence for a taxi driver costs CZK500 and it involves issuing a criminal record etc. It is also necessary to add names of drivers or owners to each car’s Technical Certificate for the charge of CZK800, which must be preceded by registration checks at “STK” costing CZK350. Given that "derive cars" can no longer be identified by any TAXI sign, it was also necessary to seal up all these vehicles, which also increased our overall cost significantly. We have covered all costs without increasing our prices to offer one of the lowest price in Prague.Taxi fares are going to stay the same despite our extra time and cost. Although drink service comes under Taxi services, we have a statement from the City Hall of Prague (department taxis) that the Decree 20/2006 does not apply to us and it is possible to use the minimum cost for transport.
Will amendment reduce quality or number of drivers?
No, the quality comes first! And for that reason we are not the cheapest service in Prague. Most of our partners = successfully passed all necessary test and exams, and we believe that we meet all our customers' requirements.
