Taxi company drivers in Seoul will be required to wear uniform again starting later this year, and self-employed cab drivers will soon follow suit, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said Thursday.
The design will be selected next month. Uniforms were abolished in 2011, but customers are complaining that some drivers now dress too casually.
Taxi drivers who do not wear uniform will be fined. The city expects to spend about W1.6 billion providing the outfits for Seoul's 3.4 million cab company drivers.
Some 490,000 self-employed cab drivers will be given their new outfits by the Seoul Private Taxi Association.
