Taxis Seek Rate Increase

taxis

Owners and Operators of taxis in Sarnia says they simply can’t survive without a rate increase.

Spokesman Jim Taylor says a number of factors beyond their control are hurting their bottom line including a huge hike in the price of gasoline

They’re asking for a 20 cent hike in the flag drop to $4, increases in the meter rate and further increases based on the price of gasoline.

It’s being recommended that the Sarnia Police Services Board refer the request to staff for a report and then debated at a later date.

    I can take a taxi in Toronto cheaper than I can in Sarnia.Maybe they should invest in some newer more gas efficient cars.

    Rates are already too high! In Toronto I can go alot further on $20 then I can here in Sarnia – $20 barely gets you anywhere.

    Aren’t Taxi Services private? I am not sure why It’s being recommended that the Sarnia Police Services Board refer the request to staff for a report and then debated at a later date.

    Cathy and Unknown. What a bunch of crap from you two. Not only is Toronto more expensive, they ad a fuel surcharge on every trip that increases as the cost of a liter of gasoline increases, you two must live in lala land because what you say us downright wrong. I use Toronto taxis on a regular basis and they are damn expensive.
