The agency also imposed an additional payment of P13.50 for every additional kilometer, and P2 for every minute during travel time.
The present charge is P3.50 per 300 meters and P3.50 per minute of waiting time.
The new rates will be implemented in the National Capital Region and the Cordillera Administrative Region.
