EASY Taxi on Monday announced it has launched Easy Taxi Premium in Singapore, joining fellow ride-booking platforms Uber and GrabTaxi in offering private hire limousines to commuters here.

Its six and seven-seater limousines - private cars not marked as taxis - will boost the supply of vehicles for hire especially during peak hours and weekends, said the Rocket Internet-backed company.

The base fare for the service is S$55, with every additional stop costing S$10 each. There is also a charge of S$10 per 15 minutes for additional waiting, according to Easy Taxi.

Commuters can choose to pay by Easy Taxi Pay, an in-app payment system which charges the fares to their credit or debit cards via their smartphones.
