While all the details are still being worked out, the San Francisco Examiner reports that early recommendations from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency include “a $5 surcharge for passengers being picked up at their homes during peak times and higher costs based on miles traveled and time stuck in a cab.”
The agency also made initial recommendations to increase meter rates. Currently, San Francisco ranks in the middle of the pack of the 12 major cities studied by the SFMTA. However, if the increases are approved, it would jump San Francisco to the top of the list, with rates higher than even Los Angeles and New York.
Muni officials are holding a final town hall meeting Monday night on possible fare changes and could vote on the final recommendation as early as Tuesday.
