The Taxi Fare Calculator
« on: September 11, 2012, 01:41:16 PM »

I found this site that estimates the cost of taxi fare within Hefei, from point A to point B.  Not sure if it's accurate because I personally don't take taxis, but maybe some of you guys can use it for something.

I presume the black taxis still have the 1 rmb fuel charge. So the greens with the new meter should not.

All the new taxis have a 9rmb flag-fall but the old taxis have an 8rmb flag-fall.

I got a taxi when it drop off a passenger with the fare still in the 8rmb range, he didn't reset the meter when I got in so the meter was still on the previous fare. As soon as we got 50 metres down the road, the meter jumped and I noticed the fare.  He put up a bit of an argument so I reset it for him. He accepted without further comment.

Make sure they reset!
