Poll: Would you be less likely to get a taxi with the higher fares?

Taxi fares are increasing today for the first time in seven years.

TAXI FARES ARE set to increase by an estimated 4% today.

It comes just one day before Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann drivers begin their planned strike action over the privatisation of some of their routes.

However, taxi fares have not increased in Ireland since 2008.

So today we’re asking, Would you be less likely to get a taxi with the higher fares?

Poll Results:

Yes (5881)
No (2313)
I don't know (306)
