DC Cabs & Meters
May 16, 2008

Well, finally I’m starting to see more and more cabs in D.C. using meters. They have until June 1 to make the switch from zones to meters but a few of the drivers are still using zones.

Last weekend, I noticed a big difference in the fare. Going from Georgetown to Ballston, it was $14 for 3 of us. Before with zones, that trip had cost around $19. For the most part, meters will benefit the average rider, esp those who are out late night and don’t have to worry about traffic driving up the cost of the meter.
