Council set to approve 10% trip surcharge for Ridgewood Taxi

In Uncategorized on September 25, 2008 at 4:39 pm

At their scheduled October 8th Public Meeting, Village Council members will officially approve Ridgewood Taxi’s request for the addition of a 10% fuel surcharge on all taxi rides regulated by local ordinance.

The taxi company had originally requested a flat $1.00 fuel surcharge on all regulated rides. This plan was flatly rejected by Council members last month on fears that the $1.00 surcharge would negatively impact senior citizens that take very short rides.

Users of the Village sponsored discount ride program will be excluded from the 10% fuel surcharge fee.

  1. …and I’m sure the ordinance was written such that the surcharge will be reduced or removed when the price of fuel drops below a certain cost.

    HA.

  2. What does the village council have to do with a privately owned entity like Ridgewood Taxi???? Seriously? I have no idea why this would come before the Village Council as an ordinance. Could someone explain that to me?

  3. THE CABS IN THE CITY NEED TO GO TO TOWN HALL TO RAISE FARES.SO DO RIDGEWOOD TAXI.AND THAT PLACE IS BARLEY STAYING ALIVE.THE BOSS SPENDS ALL THE MONEY A REAL JERK FOR DOING THAT.HE BLEW IT ALL.
