Pirate taxis cruise streets

By The Copenhagen Post

A shortage of registered taxis has created a growing demand for unregistered 'pirate' taxis

Citygoers can soon expect to pay more for a taxi ride. Starting 1 June, the price for hailing a cab on the street will increase to DKK 40 from DKK 19. Ringing for a cab will also cost more with prices increasing to DKK 50 compared to DKK 32.

The price increases are intended to make it more attractive for registered taxi drivers to work weekend shifts, according Jørgen Kjær, head of taxi drivers' association for the Greater Copenhagen area.

Kjær explained that the shortage of registered taxis made it attractive for pirate taxis to pick up the slack.

'We continually get reports from drivers about pirate taxis,' Kjær told national broadcaster DR. 'They have become more widespread and we're concerned about that because they don't pay taxes and it's dangerous for customers.'

About 150 to 200 pirate taxis are estimated to roam Copenhagen's streets during a typical weekend night. They charge about DKK 100 for a ride within the city limits.
