Cab riders wanted to rival Uber and Lyft; some of them now charge an added $5. 31 May 2017 - 17:25. Thanks to the Philadelphia Parking Authority, taxi fares will soon become more costly for Southern and Western Philadelphiaers. The PPA, which governs all staterooms in Philadelphia, today released its announcement that it will extend the cabin lump sum price range to $29.05 on July 1, plus an incremental dollar for each incremental traveller on their way from the airport.
PlanPhilly explained that cab riders had asked for the amendment and argued that it would make them more able to compete against Uber and Lyft. According to the new regulations, the south border for flat-rate travel will move from South Street to Washington Avenue and the west border from38th Street to 48th Street. Fairmount's north border in Center City and Market Street in West Pallly and the east border of the Delaware River remain unchanged.
As for the folks who live between Avenue 38 and Avenue 48 and Avenue South and Avenue Washington, get prepared to afford more. Today the Freedom Taxi trip from the airport to 1700 Carpenter St. costs about $23, from the airport to 4301 Spruce St. about the same time.
The Freedom Taxi is one of the two biggest taxi businesses in the town. Also the new packages will be significantly higher than the Uber and Lyft tariffs for the region. We asked Marty O'Rourke, spokesman for the PPA, if the group intends to increase the price of Philadelphia through this move.
