The meter is running for Miami-Dade taxis


Written by on May 11, 2017

Miami-Dade’s Transportation and Public Works committee on May 11 approved a maximum taxicab meter rate for for-hire vehicles and eliminated a cash discount. If the full commission approves, this will revise the cab flat rate to and from Miami International Airport and PortMiami.

This will allow taxis to have flexibility in their rates, said Alice Bravo, director of transportation and public works.

The recommended maximum meter rate is $2.95 for the first one-sixth of a mile and 8 cents for each one-sixth of a mile until it reaches one mile. Thereafter, it would be 40 cents for each additional one-sixth of a mile. Recommended waiting time rate is 40 cents a minute.
