Revised DC Taxi Meter Rate Proposal To Keep Some Surcharges

by admin on February 9, 2012

Under the latest proposal, the D.C. Taxicab Commission recently proposed not to discard the per-passenger surcharge.  Currently, all D.C. taxis charge a surcharge of $1.50 for each additional passenger after the first rider for all taxis.

The per-passenger surcharge would only apply to passengers which ride in DC taxicab vans.

A per-bag surcharge will also remain in effect.  Currently DC taxicab drivers charge $0.50 for each bag beyond the first.  The new proposal allows for $0.50 surcharge for each individual piece of luggage.

As stated in the previous proposal, the meter distance rate will increase from $1.50 to $2.16 per mile and the wait-time & traffic delay rate will increase from $15.00 to $25.00 per hour.

The new meter rates are scheduled to go in effect after a minimum of a 30-day comment period ends.
