$3 cab surcharge at Resort World Sentosa

By Maria Almenoar

VISITORS to Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) will have to pay a premium to take a taxi from the integrated resort when it opens next week.

Four taxi companies have confirmed that they will impose a $3 surcharge for trips that begin at the IR.

Premier Taxis will be the first - it will start charging on Jan 18 - followed by SMRT on Jan 20 and Prime Taxis on Jan 28.

Trans-Cab will follow suit, but has not confirmed a start date. Smart Cabs said it will join in, if most of the other companies impose the surcharge.

The lone exception: ComfortDelgro, which is far and away the largest taxi company in Singapore.

The companies that are imposing the surcharge say they are doing it to ensure taxi drivers will find it worth their while to cross into Sentosa.
