Fare is also a factor. Dili pa de-metro before so these taxis, if I can recall, charge a fixed fare regardless of distance. Unlike in the past, taxis is now a viable option for the commuting public. ^^Also, I hope they use brand new units. If I recall correctly, the last time Butuan had taxis, they were reconditioned surplus units (the green ones) which weren't always in the best condition. That may be a reason why it wasn't successful.
