D.C. Taxis Add $15 Storm Surcharge

Taxis that originate in Washington were authorized to add an emergency flat rate of $15 per trip because of Hurricane Sandy, starting Monday.

The price is supposed to expire at noon Tuesday, but can be extended if considered necessary. The capital area's transit system shut down rail service for the first time since 2003 -- and regional rail has also been suspended.
