    >Also, a video began airing today in the back of city cabs urging riders to ďTake out your boss, take out a friend, take our your date, but donít take out a cyclist."<

    Televisions in the backs of taxis?

    ^^Yep - for years now. It's probably so you don't watch the meter!

    Rate of Fare


    Standard City Rate (Rate Code 1)
    $2.50 upon entry
    $0.50 for each additional unit
    The unit fare is:

    one-fifth of a mile, when the taxicab is traveling at 6 miles an hour or more; or
    60 seconds when not in motion or traveling at less than 6 miles per hour.
    The taximeter shall combine fractional measures of distance and time in accruing a unit of fare. Any combination of distance or time shall be computed by the taximeter in accordance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology Handbook 44.
    The fare shall include pre-assessment of the unit currently being accrued; the amount due may therefore include a full unit charge for a final, fractional unit.
    Night surcharge of $.50 after 8:00 PM & before 6:00 AM
    Peak hour Weekday Surcharge of $1.00 Monday - Friday after 4:00 PM & before 8:00 PM
    New York State Tax Surcharge of $.50 per ride.

    I have no idea how people afford this on a daily basis. I took a cab in Boston once last year and almost cried at the price. Good thing my mother was with me, she can afford it better than I can
