I was out of town this week-end so I didn’t receive your phone message until late last evening. You had called asking about some typical taxi fares based on the current versus proposed fares. I received a spreadsheet from the task force that outlines some examples. I had asked for some examples in the area of a 5 mile trip. They informed me that the average trip distance is 4 miles but nevertheless provided the examples listed below.
