All you cab riders out there: you know those extra 50-cent gas surcharges you’ve been paying for each cab you’ve been calling since June 2? No more.
That means, as of Monday, November 30 at 12:01 am you can pocket that 50-cent or spend it on those Christmas gifts you still need to buy.
The 50-cent surcharge brought the $2.70 base fare in the city up to $3.20. The additional money was to help cover the high cost of gas (when it was up to $4.00/gallon) being spent by cab owners.
Not only that, the surcharge also helped the authority board deal with the daily price changes.
