Taxi union asking for 7% fare increase

CTV Ottawa reports the union representing Ottawa taxi drivers is asking the city for a fare increase of 7 per cent.

They say the rising costs of gasoline and insurance rates justify the increase.

The last taxi fare increase in the city was in 2010, to cover the implementation of the HST.

City council will get the final say on whether an increase goes through.
