DC Taxicab Commission Proposed Rule to Adjust Rates and Modernize Fleet

 

From Juanda Mixon:

The D.C. Taxicab Commission today approved proposed new rules that will bring the District’s cab fares more in line with peer jurisdictions and initiate modernization of the District’s taxicab fleet. The fares will rise slightly on trips under five miles and more quickly for long-distance rides. The proposed rules also begin the process of eliminating outdated vehicles as taxicabs.
