MABUHAY Taxi Davao launched 50 new and improved black taxi units on Nov. 23 at Park Inn, Lanang, Davao City.
The old units were in service for almost 15 years.
Nonito Llanos, Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) XI regional director, said the Mabuhay black taxis will serve as the “first allowed taxi in the country to operate in a different color.”
Llanos also said they will allow other operating vehicles if they plan to change the color of their taxis to black.
Pierre Ryan Tan, Mabuhay operations manager, said the taxis will also accept cashless transactions, as well as debit cards, aside from the usual cash payments. The company also plans to share the QR Ph with its sister company, the Blue Taxi.
They will re-offer their call-taxi services to accommodate more passengers in their respective homes.
The initial 50 Mabuhay black taxis will start operating on Dec. 1 with the same flag-down rate and fare in Davao City.
