Mayor Gray Signs Order Allowing Taxicab Fuel Surcharge
Transportation

This story comes to us from Linda Wharton Boyd:

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Mayor Vincent C. Gray has signed an executive order authorizing a $1.00 fuel surcharge for all taxicab rides within the District of Columbia.

The charge will take effect Monday, March 28. The action follows a recommendation from the Taxicab Commission to offset the impact of the steady rise in fuel prices in the metropolitan area on taxicab operators.

 

The fuel surcharge will only affect taxicab fares for service provided within the District of Columbia and does not apply to interstate fares. The fuel surcharge will be applicable beginning at 12:01 am on March 28, 2011.

It will expire on July 25, 2011, 120 days after its effective date. However, the Taxicab Commission Chairperson can repeal it before the expiration if conditions warrant.
