Snow emergency fare means $15 fee for DC cabs during storm

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON - D.C.’s declared Snow Emergency means cab rides will cost you during Thursday’s storm.  Beginning at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, taxicabs in D.C. will be authorized to charge a flat fee of $15, on top of the metered fare.  

The DC Taxicab Commission announces that the Snow Emergency Fare will go in effect to coincide with D.C.’s Snow Emergency. The fare will remain in effect for 12 hours unless extended as determined by the weather conditions.
 
The commission says the goal is to induce taxis to remain in service and be available to meet the transportation needs of the public.
 
Drivers are advised to monitor the DCTC web site to be aware of possible extensions or changes. Riders who believe they have been charged an excessive fare or who encounter service problems are advised to contact DCTC at 855.484.4966 or DCTC3@dc.gov and leave a brief message describing the issue.
