NYC To Begin Zone Rates For Taxis
With all of mass transit out of service, today New York City's Taxi & Limousine Commission ordered livery cabs and taxis to switch to a zoned fare system. Zoned fares begin tomorrow morning and metered rides will continue until then. Twitter users have already begun reporting major cab fare ripoffs since the subways closed down at noon. As in "$50 to go downtown."
Here's the PDF of the temporary rules.
