Q: HOW MUCH TAXI COST AND WHAT ARE THE TAXI METER RATES?
Answer: taxi cost roughly 2.5$ for a mile but that just a rough way to calculate it. the actual way taxi meters works is:
Starting rate (the cost to just get in the cab) 2.5$.
Taxi meter will add 2.5$ for every mile the cab drive with speed over 11mph.
In addition to the 2.5$ for mile, taxi meter will start adding 0.5$ per minute if the speed is below 11mph.
some companies add X amount of $ for extra passenger, our company does not do or allow our drivers to do that.
