Taxis registered in Recife are authorized to operate under Flag 2 throughout the month of February, informed the Recife Traffic and Urban Transport Authority (CTTU). The value of the flag continues R$ 5.12 but the kilometer passes R$2.49 to R$3.01.

Flag 2 is a fixed fare calculated at specific times and is generally regulated by the city hall. Like Flag 1, it is also calculated using the taximeter, which starts rotating the moment the passenger enters the car.

The fare increases with each kilometer traveled and, when the vehicle is stopped, the meter does not count. Despite the change in values, Flag 2 is different from Dynamic Value, which is an adjustment feature that changes according to supply and demand for application services. Dynamic Value is a pricing mechanism used by transport companies.

In Recife, Flag 2 was also used during the month of December last year. According to the city hall, this measure takes place annually and serves as a Christmas bonus for drivers during the end of year festivities.
