New changes coming to D.C. cabs

D.C. is a huge city for taxis, yet we seem to lag behind most other cities.  Good news: changes are coming.

The Cloture Club has summarized a lot of these changes, and the D.C. Taxicab Commission has issued a number of press releases.

Some of the changes:

  • All taxis will accept credit cards by August 31, 2013.
  • The base fare will increase from $3.00 to $3.25 on June 1, 2013
  • An additional 25 cent surcharge will be charged per ride to support to the Taxicab Commission
  • Taxis will once again charge $1 per extra passenger
  • Baggage fees have been eliminated

So you can use credit cards . . . but you'll probably be paying more overall.
