“Dear PoP,

The $1.00 fuel surcharge expired on the 17th, but every cab I have taken since then has tried to charge me the surcharge. It would be a service to your readers to let them know.”

I put a call into the DC Taxi Commission and was told that the $1 fuel surcharge has been extended until March 5, 2012. It was previously extended from July 25, 2011 – Nov. 17, 2011. New stickers indicating the March 5, 2012 extension will be placed in taxi cabs.

Incidentally there is a meeting about a rate increase on Tuesday, November 29, 2011, at 10 am in the Old Council Chambers at 441 4th Street, NW.
