Our Taximeters


Taximeters have an internal clock and a connection to the Vehicle Speed Sensor. They use these tools to determine how far the cab has travelled and how much time has been spent waiting (at a traffic signal, for example).

The rates on this page are given in a per-mile format to facilitate your estimate of the cost of your trip. Our taximeters actually measure sevenths of a mile. If you get into a taxi ($1.57) and travel 1/7 of a mile with no stops (33 cents), you will be charged $1.57 + 33 cents + $1.15 fuel surcharge, totalling $3.15.

Traffic delays such as traffic signals, railroad crossings and heavy traffic will affect the cost of your ride.
