Sanya takes measures to solve taxi shortage at Sanya Phoenix Int’l Airport
Passengers in Sanya have complained they are difficult to grab a taxi at Sanya Phoenix International Airport, and many of them say they are compelled to wait for taxis for a long time on the city’s roads, reports 0898.net.
“Taxis are often not available at Sanya Phoenix Airport. I find it difficult getting back to the downtown center since fewer buses turn up at the airport in the late evening,” said Mr. Zhou, who is often bothered by the shortage of taxis at the airport after returning by plane from a business trip.
In 2010, the passenger throughput of Sanya Phoenix International Airport hit 9 million passengers, with the average daily passenger volume reaching 24,000.
At present, the total number of taxis in the city is 1,082. With urban development and increasing population, more taxis are needed to solve this problem.
According to officials with the Sanya Transportation Bureau, they have sent an inspection team to ensure smooth traffic everyday from 9:00 am till the last flight at the airport.
Besides, the Taxi Association in Sanya has decided that every taxi will run to the airport twice every day to alleviate the situation of insufficient taxi capacity at the airport.
