Taxi Meter Rates: Last Chance to Protest

The comment period on the proposed taxi meter rates will end on Monday, January 7th. If you are concerned by the potential time and distance meter rates, please take a moment to contact the DC City Council over the weekend. You can do so easily by signing a petition here.

If you're interested, I wrote more extensively on the topic in a November post. The long and short of my concerns is that those of us who take taxi rides for trips of one to three miles will end up paying more under the rates planned for the new time and distance meters. I already find the rates to be pretty high, particularly as compared to other cities, so I would prefer not to see them rise further. To find out more follow the link above to the petition and then check out the links list at the bottom right side of the page.
