The Royal Gazette website on Wednesday published a Transport Ministry announcement that extends the service life of taxis from nine to 12 years, to be effective retroactively from January 21.

The announcement, signed by Department of Land Transport director-general Jirut Wisanjit, stipulates that taxis with less than seven seats registered from December 26, 2008, to December 31, 2020, will have a service life of 12 years starting from the date that its fare meter is first used after being issued by the department.

The measure was approved by the Cabinet back in September 2020 in a move to reduce the financial burden on cabbies during the Covid-19 crisis.
