Introduction of meters, Washington ends taxi zone system
WHATINGTON - The District of Columbia will be determined on Thursday over taxi drivers' concerns to abolish its seven-decade-old taxi tariff calculation system. Traditional chronometers and rangefinders will supersede a system basing on geographical areas. It was the only large US town whose tariffs were determined by the number of areas a taxi through.
A lot of passengers, especially from the city, found the system of 23 areas bewildering. "Passengers demanded a more open pricing system, and the burgomaster responded," said Leon J. Swain Jr., chair of the Taxikab Commission, in a telephone conversation. Counters usually lead to lower tariffs for shorter journeys, but higher tariffs for longer journeys.
This change did not go well for the city's more than 6,500 taxi riders, who have carried out a string of one-day strike actions, one Petition and several regulatory issues. Taxi riders say that lower tariffs will push many out of business. They further say that the zoning system lump sums help people living in poverty to find a household to cover the cost of regularly travelling to the grocer', work or doctor's toes.
The 22-year-old taxi driver Olayinka Coker, who works seven nights a week, faces the new counters, but says he won't miss out on the tariff dispute. "I' m sick of fighting with my customers when they tell me, "You don't have counters, are you doing your charge or what?
In 2006, Senator Carl Levin, Democrat of Michigan and long-time reviewer of the Zone, enacted a law that required a relocation to metres within a year, unless the major had explicitly retired. "In my own personal opinion, I probably came across 10 different taxi rates for the same trip," Mr Levin said in a note to Adrian M. Fenty, who supported the October amendment.
Thursday's change comes one week after the town has given an impulse to sell itself to the tourist. Driver who are busted without a meter get a warning by June 1, after which they face a fine of $1,000, say municipal officers. The new system allows the driver to charge a basic interest of $3, which covers every single trip up to the first 6th of a kilometer.
Each further 6th of a kilometer or minutes of wait costs 25 Cent. Mary Costner, 69, of Chatham, N.J., said the new system would help her assess the precision of her ticket price.
