LTA sets minimum standards for taxi operators
Singapore's Land Transport Authority has set minimum standards for taxi availability.
From January 2013, 70 per cent of all taxis, per cab company, will have to hit a minimum daily mileage of 250 kilometres.
This translates to around eight to nine hours on the road per day, five days a week.
Cab companies will also need to ensure that 70 per cent of their entire fleet are on the roads during the morning and evening peak periods.
Based on these indicators, authorities will evaluate if taxi firms are allowed to grow their fleet.
