Deputy Transport Minister set to wipe out taxi queue mafia

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Deputy Transport Minister of the new government, Songsak Thongsri, has pledged he will get rid of all influential gangs controlling taxi queues at Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports. He said he wants the Airports of Thailand (AOT) to regulate taxi queues with fair practices and collect the profiles of taxi drivers at the queues.

He also plans to allow any taxi drivers who drop off departing passengers to queue up and wait for arriving passengers at Suvarnabhumi airport. This policy should eliminate influential groups controlling taxi queues there, he said.




New government to force fare meters in taxis to protect passengers

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

Taxis servicing Suvarnabhumi airport and its vicinity will soon all be required to use their fare meters to protect the interests of passengers. Deputy Transport Minister Songsak Thongsri said yesterday (February 26, 2008) he agreed with the proposal presented by Airports of Thailand (AOT).

There were many communities in the vicinity of the airport, and the residents needed a regulated taxi service.

Bangkok taxis are now required by transport regulations to use fare meters within a 37-kilometre radius of Victory Monument.

This extends only to the second kilometre marker on the Bang Na-Bang Pakong highway. Suvarnabhumi is at least another 10 kilometres up the road.
