Beijing News (Reporter Pei Jianfei) Today (July 12) morning, the reporter learned from the Ministry of Transport that by 2020, road transport competitive areas and link prices will be basically liberalized. Tour taxi enterprises should adjust their freight rates in time according to transportation cost and income level. Online taxi companies should publicly price-fixing and price-increasing mechanism.

Road transport prices will be determined mainly by the market
This morning, the Ministry of Transport and the National Development and Reform Commission jointly issued the Draft for Advice on Deepening the Reform of Road Transport Prices (hereinafter referred to as Draft for Advice). It is pointed out that by 2020, the competitive areas and link prices of road transport will be basically liberalized, the dynamic adjustment mechanism of road transport prices with government pricing and government guiding prices will be effectively established, and the price behavior of operators in road passenger transport and taxi industry will be more standardized, and the formation mechanism of road transport prices mainly determined by the market will be maintained. A scientific, standardized and transparent price supervision system for road transport is basically sound, and the role of price mechanism in guiding resource allocation, promoting high-quality development of the industry and meeting peoples travel needs has increased significantly.
In the future, we will give full play to the leverage role of price in regulating the supply-demand relationship in the market, speed up the improvement of the mechanism of determining prices mainly by the market, and hand over all the prices that can be formed by the market to the market, stimulate market vitality and improve the efficiency of resource allocation. For road transport prices that do not yet meet the conditions of liberalization, we should establish and improve a government pricing mechanism that reflects cost scientifically, reflects quality efficiency and adjusts flexibly and dynamically.
Draft for comments once again emphasizes the implementation of inclusive and prudent price policy for the new mode of road transport, such as net-appointed vehicles. In accordance with the requirement of combination of release and control, we should strengthen post-event supervision of price behavior and monitoring of market price level to ensure market stability and promote fair competition. At the same time, the price of transport services in basic public services should be kept basically stable, so as to prevent big fluctuations of transport prices in spring transportation, holidays and other peak seasons.
Taxis should adjust the tariff in time according to the cost. The mechanism of pricing and price increase should be made public.
Can taxi fares change? How should it change? This involves the interests of passengers, taxi drivers, taxi companies and other parties. The draft solicits Opinions also provides ideas and requirements for policy formulation, and all localities should improve the formation mechanism of cruise taxi tariffs. For those taxis that are included in the local pricing catalogue according to law and are subject to government pricing or guided pricing management, all localities should speed up and improve the formation mechanism of freight rates, establish and improve the dynamic adjustment mechanism of freight rates, and regularly evaluate and improve it in accordance with the requirements of Document No. 58 issued by the State Office.
In the future, according to the actual situation in the region, all localities should take into account the factors such as taxi operation cost, income level of residents and drivers, traffic conditions and service quality, and adjust the level and structure of taxi fares in time according to the prescribed procedures. We should encourage all localities to gradually establish and improve the mechanism of freight adjustment, conduct hearings on the mechanism of freight adjustment, promptly implement the adjustment of freight rates when starting conditions are reached and announce it to the public, so as to realize the mechanization and dynamics of freight adjustment and enhance the timeliness and flexibility of the price.
At the same time, we should standardize the price management of the new mode of road transport. The city peoples government thinks it necessary to regulate the price behavior of Internet taxis (hereinafter referred to as internet taxis) and to regulate the market price of Internet taxis. The company should publicize the pricing mechanism and dynamic pricing mechanism actively, publish the tariff structure and pricing rules through company website and mobile Internet application (APP), maintain reasonable and relatively stable pricing standards, ensure clear, standardized and transparent settlement bills, and accept social supervision.
Illegal price increases during Spring Festival and bad weather will be recorded in bad credit records
In addition, the draft solicits opinions proposes that road transport prices and bus passenger terminal fees, which are fixed by the real government and guided by the government, should be included in the local pricing catalogue according to law. When setting or adjusting prices, the pricing authorities shall carry out cost supervision or cost investigation according to law, and widely listen to the opinions of various sectors of society. During the Spring Festival and the holidays, bus fares shall not be subject to special price increases beyond the normal government pricing or government guidance pricing.
And the operators self-pricing behavior will be further standardized. Road transport operators should carry out clearly marked prices, publicize service items and prices, and keep prices basically stable. Bus operators should announce the executive fare to the public at least 7 days in advance at bus stations, ticket sales channels, etc. If the government guided fare is applied to bus passenger transport, the upper limit fare shall be marked on the ticket (including electronic ticket) or publicized through ticketing channels. Bus passenger stations and bus operators are encouraged to provide free re-signing services to passengers. Road transport operators shall, in accordance with the price policy, formulate or adjust the price, adjust the pricing mechanism or dynamic price increase mechanism of the network car-booking platform company, and make it known to the public at least 7 days in advance.
At the same time, all road transport enterprises, including cruise taxis, Internet bookings and bus passenger transport, will also be blacklisted in bad credit records for their illegal price increases in key periods or bad weather. The draft solicits opinions clearly states that it will strengthen price monitoring and credit system construction, focus on strengthening price monitoring in key periods such as Spring Festival and Holidays, improve the response plan for abnormal price fluctuations, timely put forward regulatory suggestions, and maintain the price level in a reasonable range. We should promote the establishment of a mechanism to punish the price dishonesty of road transport, incorporate the operators and their principal responsible personsbad credit records into the national credit information sharing platform, and implement joint punishment for dishonesty.
