Ha Noi People's Committee has ordered that unqualified taxis lose their licences, said the committee's deputy chairman, Nguyen Quoc Hung.
However, he said qualified taxi firms should be permitted to run more cabs following the establishment of a project to look at the management of taxis approved last October.
Officials in transport and police sectors have been required to arrange sites for taxis to pick up or drop off passengers at major conjunctions, hospitals, stations, residential areas, cultural, sport and tourism sites or shopping centres.
The city also asked the transport department to try and increase bus frequencies on bus route No. 74 from My Dinh Coach Station to Xuan Khanh Ward of Son Tay District and Bus route No.61 from Van Ha Commune, Dong Anh District to Me Linh District.
The transport department also suggested the establishment of long-distance bus routes from the city to Da Chong area, Ba Vi District to meet demand.
