Taximeter Increase for San Jose Cabs

With my last months gas receipts adding up to $1,500, I was almost giddy to find gas at $4.13 a gallon. We (taxi drivers) have been only hanging in there for sometime now. If the city council approves a meter increase this afternoon it won’t totally fix the situation, but it will help keep the taxicabs rollin’.

The new ‘flag drop’ would be $3.50 – the per mile charge would then be $3.00.

A $15.00 minimum out of SJC would be appreciated.

Mayor Chuck Reed is for the hike, and hopefully he will have some influence with the city council.
