The cost of living continues to rise.

Taxi fares will be more expensive this Sunday, April 1, by 6.9%.

That's how Wala found out.

The increase in price: just before the Israelis leave for the Passover holiday and will need taxis for travel to and from Israel, and for travel during the two Passover holidays and the weekend in between, due to the shutdown of public transportation on Shabbat and the holiday. For example, the meter

will read 11.8 shekels at the beginning of the trip instead of 11.1 shekels today. The price of each meter beat will become more expensive From NIS 1.74 to NIS 1.84.

These, it is important to emphasize, are the prices for rate 1, which will be charged during the daytime in the middle of the week.

The rates in rate 2, which will be charged in the evening and at night, and in rate 3, which will be charged on Thursday, Friday and Tuesday nights, will be higher. In recent years, the Ministry of Transportation has also canceled the fees that drivers enjoyed for a third and fourth passenger and for transporting luggage, and the intercity travel price list.

" We have been working on receiving compensation for our ongoing price increases, the increase in fuel, insurance and taxi prices for weeks and it has finally been approved," says Yehuda Bar Or, chairman of the taxi drivers' union.

"At the same time, we are continuing discussions with the Ministry of Transportation to correct the injustice created by the new meters, which reduced the price of the trip by 30% outside the city and made these trips economically unviable for the drivers."
