Looks confusing? Let's look at an example. Bob wants to travel 1 mile in a taxi. When the meter starts, his base fare is $2.50. When he reaches his destination after a mile, he will be charged a $2.50 fare for the mile. So, Bob's total fare will be $5. No taxes are added. Now, if there were 2 passengers who entered a taxi, the base fare would be $2.50 + $1.00 for the additional passenger (unless the passenger is 6 years or below). So, with 2 passengers, the meter actually starts at $3.50. Any additional miles are charged at $2.50. So, if 2 passengers travel in a taxi for 1 mile, the total fare will be $6.

Now lets understand taxi wait time charges. As mentioned above, cab waiting time in Richmond VA is charged at $0.50 for every 80 seconds of waiting time. However, idling time is also considered as wait time. So, if you're stuck in traffic, each time your taxi starts idling or has stopped, you are charged 50 cents per 80 seconds. This can actually send your taxi fare skyrocketing pretty fast. Not great, right? Well, with our taxi service, we can offer you long distance flat rates in advance, so even if you are stuck in traffic for 20-30 minutes, we will honor our taxi rate quote.
