100 new special taxis will be added to roads in Sanya soon to help cope with the shortage of taxis in the city, according to a local responsible department.


Unlike previous taxis, these new taxis are allowed to run only within specific areas in the city such as Phoenix Road, Sanya Bay Road, Dadonghai Square, the Phoenix Airport and railway station.


"After the plan is implemented, no taxi driver can refuse a ride for a short distance," said an official with the Sanya Transport Department.


Meanwhile, marks like urban taxi will be given to the special place of the new taxis to inform the public its special operating service.


In addition, another 150 new taxis have been placed to run on roads to ease the shortage of taxis residents and tourists in the city are now facing.
