TransCab is the second-largest operator here with 4,300 taxis.
If you hail one of 300 new Chevrolet Epica taxis operated by TransCab, expect to see a flag-down fare of $3.60 on the meter. Commuters will be able to differentiate the new taxis from the old by the colour of their window rims. The older taxis have white window rims and white tops while the newer ones have red window rims instead
The rise in COE prices is why rental rates for drivers differ for the two types of cabs as well, Ms Tan explained. The new ones cost drivers $123.05 a day, compared to $115.56 for the old.
