Taxi Fare Hike in NYC

New York City has approved a 17% fare increase for cabs. This, the first major hikes in 6 years, will take effect in September and will raise the cost of a current $12 ride to $14. The increase has made New York the fourth highest in cost for the average taxi ride behind Tokyo, San Francisco and Los Angeles. This week on BTR Pulse we ask people their thoughts on this latest fare hike.
