OC taxi drivers propose rate increase
By Kelli Steele

Taxi drivers in Ocean City want to increase their rates.

WBOC TV reports that cab fares are currently $2.20 per mile in the resort. But many drivers feel the fares need to be higher to cover expenses like taxi maintenance.

Cab drivers are proposing the rates be increased to $3.70 per mile.

Taxi rates in surrounding cities including Baltimore, Philadelphia and D.C. are currently comparable to the current rate in OC.
