Taxi fare increase

It had been in the air for a few months already, but yesterday Shanghai finally decided to increase its taxi fares. And in typical Shanghainese fashion (=fast) it will be implemented not next year or next month, but starting today. The only problem is that all the taxi meters need to be adjusted first, and that will take a few weeks. So when I took a cab earlier this morning the rate was still 10 RMB for the first 3 km (new rate is 11 RMB, and a 5% increase for all subsequent kilometers).
