Days On The Beach in Side
- Taxis Prices Change in Istanbul -
One of the causes for a possible scam by taxi drivers has been eliminated. Hurriyet newspaper reports that in Istanbul night rates have been abolished but the taxi drivers got a 15% increase in their fares. Starting next week all taxi rates (fares/km) within the municipality of Istanbul will be the same 24 hours a day. The start of the meter will cost 2.5 TL and the rest of the rates/km got a 15% hike from the old daytime rates..

With this system there will be no "Gece" or "Gunduz" rates anymore. This is good news for everyone and although total fares will cost a bit more, in fact the old nightime rates have decreased 35% (they used to be 50% more than daytime rates).
