From the DC Taxicab Commission:
“The Interim Chairman of the DC Taxicab Commission (DCTC), Eric Rogers, today announces that the Snow Emergency Fare will go in effect at 7:00 am on March 5, 2015 to coincide with the declaration of a snow emergency for the District. The fare will remain in effect for 12 hours unless modified as determined by the weather conditions.
The Snow Emergency Fare authorizes taxicabs to add a flat fee of $15.00 to the metered charge. The objective is to induce taxis to remain in service and be available to meet the transportation needs of the public.”
