It Will Cost Your More To Ride In A Yellow Cab Come January!

It will cost riders $5.80 just to sit inside a cab. The so-called “congestion fee” was approved by  Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature and is meant to fund mass transit. But some taxi drivers fear the new fee will scare off passengers and hurt their bottom line. Yellow taxis also charge riders a $1 surcharge for rides between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and a 50 cent night fee from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. App-based ride hails like Uber and Lyft will be required to implement a $2.75 fee for regular trips and 75 cents for carpool trips. The higher $2.75 surcharge will also apply to the city’s green cabs.
