Actually it's Monday. Assuming others will go up also but don't know how much.

The combi increase is no problem for me. I think about and feel badly for the hundreds of locals who use the combi
round trip daily to get to and from work. For La Ropa this is 3 pesos a day. Who knows how much the other routes are going up.

The general feeling is the rate hike is not justified, especially considering that the price of fuel has been decreasing recently.

If this was to help getting better wages for their staff, that would be alright, even with lower cost of fuel as everything else is still going up. But I would be surprised if that was the case.

Excerpt from Feb. 08 2019 post by cd69:

........ "even with lower cost of fuel as everything else is still going up."

Exactly..
Expenses such as:
Maintenance/repairs, insurance, (and can't forget the cerveza), might be other operating costs a taxi owner would have to pay for besides gasoline?
