On March 4, 2003, the District of Columbia Taxicab Commission (“Commission”) adopted a $1 per trip emergency gasoline surcharge (“Gasoline Surcharge”). The gasoline surcharge became effective as of 12:01 am this morning. The gasoline surcharge expired at midnight Tuesday, July 1, 2003.
The Commission anticipates that all licensed district taxicabs will have the rate sticker decal reflecting the $1 increase no later than Friday, March 28. Notice of the gasoline surcharge appeared in the March 28 edition of the District of Columbia Register.
Taxicab operators or passengers may contact the Commission office at (202) 645-6018 or (202) 645-6005 to obtain copies of the gasoline surcharge notice with the increased fares.
