Faced with the high prices that mobility applications have had, multiple users have complained and requested local and federal governments to regulate the situation and regarding the state of Puebla, this request has already been successful.
According to the Ministry of Mobility and Transportation of the government of Puebla, who published a decree in the state Official Newspaper to regulate the maximum rates, the new rates will have a maximum limit and will apply not only for this type of applications, but also for the service of taxi.
The agency considered that “it is necessary” to apply the measure because the demand for the executive service (Uber, Didi, and other applications) increases particularly in December and thus will avoid the “excessive and disproportionate collection of rates to the detriment of Puebla society.”
What does the Puebla report say about rates?
The report indicates that the daytime rates for the Transportation Service in its Executive Service modality in the State of Puebla will be:
Base Rate 17.50 pesos and will be applied at the time of requesting the service through the application and for payment in cash at the time of boarding the unit.
The minimum charge per trip will be 52 pesos for journeys of up to five kilometers from origin to destination, at the time of boarding the unit, in the Metropolitan Area, while 87 pesos will be charged for trips of more than 10 kilometers. And on trips greater than 11 kilometers and up to 25 kilometers, the amount will be from 122 to 226 pesos.
What will be the amount for nightly rates?
AmericanPost.News reports that, in the case of night rates for Uber, Rappi and Didi, the state government determined a minimum amount of 68 pesos, while the maximum amount will be 294 pesos.
It should be noted that this agreement will be in force for a couple of days, from this December 29, 2021 to January 15, 2022, since the idea is that the end of the year holidays are not overshadowed with dynamic rates that abuse the consumer.
