Friday, January 18, 2019

CONCORD – In response to local operator requests, on January 10 the Concord City Council updated Chapter 18 of the City Code, regulating maximum allowable taxicab rates within the corporate limits of the city and up to two miles beyond as determined by taxicab meters.

The maximum rates were last changed in 2005 and the new rates are effective March 1, 2019 as follows: 1) the maximum initial meter charge increasing from $2.00 to $2.50; 2) the maximum additional distance charge changing from $0.50 per ¼ mile to $.30 per 1/8 mile (or $0.60 per ¼ mile). Other maximum rates will not change.
