Fuel Surcharge System

On April 23, 2012 the Board of the Philadelphia Parking Authority, at its scheduled April meeting approved a measure implementing a fuel surcharge system for all Philadelphia Taxicabs and Airport Transfer Services, (a category of limousine service largely provided in vans).

The surcharge system allows for the fuel surcharge to change monthly based on fluctuating gas prices as described in the chart posted with the Board Resolution of April 23, 2012 (see link for chart on this page at December 19 Posting).

As required in the April 23, 2012 Resolution, the average price per gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline must be evaluated each month, the corresponding surcharge determined and then posted on the Taxicab and Limousine page of the Authority’s website on the third Friday of that month for the following month.

The fuel surcharge for April 1, 2014 through April 30, 2014 is as follows:

For Taxicabs – $1.05 per trip.

For Airport Transfer Services (as described above) – $2.35 per passenger.
