YOU MUST POST A NEW TAXI FARE STICKER BY NOVEMBER 1, 2009
New York State passed a new law that adds a 50-cent “State surcharge” to taxi trips. The fare stickers have been changed to show this $0.50 increase. You must have the new fare stickers in place by 11:59 p.m. on October 31, 2009.
You can buy these stickers from any TLC authorized printer. There is a list of authorized printers on TLC’s Web site at: www.nyc.gov/tlc under “Safety & Emissions” and “New Taxicab Logo.”
NOTE: Even though the new fare sticker shows a $3 initial fare, the TLC has not changed the initial fare from $2.50. The sticker shows $3 so that it fits on the sticker. The $3 includes the $2.50 initial fare and the $0.50 State surcharge.
