B&C: Philadelphia raises taxi rates

A post I wrote for the Temple News blog, Broad & Cecil: Philadelphia raises taxi rates: 2.25.08

According to the Associated Press, the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Taxi and Limousine Division has approved a rate increase. The initial $2.70 charge will remain the same, but the per-mile charge will rise to $2.30 from $2.10. The change is set to take effect on June 2.

In other taxi news: as Philadelphia raises its fare price, New York City is developing, and mandating, green taxi cabs.
