The DC Taxicab Commission (DCTC) today announces that the Snow Emergency Fare will go in effect to coincide with the declaration by the Mayor of a snow emergency effective on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 9:30 am. The fare will remain in effect for 12 hours unless extended as determined by the weather conditions. 
The Snow Emergency Fare authorizes taxicabs to add a flat fee of $15.00 to the metered charge. 
Drivers are advised to monitor the DCTC web site to be aware of possible extensions or changes. Riders who believe they have been charged an excessive fare or who encounter service problems are advised to contact DCTC at 855.484.4966 or [email protected] and leave a brief message describing the issue.
