Protest the $1.50 Extra Passenger Surcharge Today!
Make your voice heard on DC taxi fare changes! Mayor Fenty and the DC taxicab Commission are proposing to reinstate the $1.50 extra passenger surcharge with the meter system and they need to hear from you that this is nothing but a rider tax that will again make DC cab fares foolishly complex and expensive.
Get up in their grill and let them know that the original taxi meter fares are reasonable and realistic – no more surprise add-ons for additional passengers, rush hour, fuel prices, barometric pressure changes, and whatever else the DC Cab Commission can think of to fleece riders. Get online, on paper, or on the phone today and tomorrow to:
DC Taxicab Commission
2041 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE
Washington DC 20020.
