Taxis Seek Rate Increase

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.
