Interstate Taxicab Fares:

To estimate a fare for a taxicab trip in the Washington Metropolitan Area, follow this two-step process.

Calculate the mileage of your trip using Google Maps or some other mapping tool.

Select the appropriate rate chart below. (Generally, the taxicab you hail or call should be licensed by the jurisdiction where your trip begins). Round the mileage up to the next half-mile or mile, depending on which rate chart you select, and find the corresponding base fare. Remember to include any applicable incidental charges listed at the bottom of the rate sheet.

NOTE: This process produces an approximate fare. The fare on the meter may vary depending on the route actually traveled and traffic congestion. The driver is required to take the shortest route unless the passenger orders otherwise. Keep in mind that the shortest route is not always the quickest route.
