A new taxi service that promises to never reject fares will hit Bangkok’s streets Monday.
Operated by well-known bus company Nakhon Chai Air, All Thai Taxi will launch a trial run Monday with 40 Toyota Hybrid Prius that can be hailed via a smartphone app.
The service charges a THB20 fee while the meter start at THB35. The “All Thai Taxi” application will also be available for download on Monday.
The complete service with 100 taxis will launch May 15. Then users will be able to hail a taxi, summon one via the app or by hotline 1624 at any time.
The key to their no-rejection pledge is its drivers are not freelancers. They are trained and receive salaries from Nakhon Chai Air. Female taxi drivers are available upon request. For the first time in Thailand, taxis will also accept credit card payment.
The company said it will increase its fleet of taxis to 500 by August.
