The Executive of the Route Taxi Association of Jamaica (RTAJ) is to meet this morning to craft its response to the 25 per cent increase in bus and taxi fares announced by the government.
The fare adjustment was announced on Monday by Transport Minister Dr Omar Davies.
The association has already expressed disappointment with the level of increase.
The RTAJ insists that it will not accept an increase under 35 per cent.
Association president Sophia Campbell stresses that taxi operators are facing higher operational costs and need a more favourable fare increase to help offset those burdens.
The increase in bus and taxi fares takes effective on Sunday.
