Abstract

Cab fares in Portland are controlled by the city, and haven't been increased in seven years. Drivers say the cost of doing business has continued to increase, and they want to see the Portland City Council's Public Safety Committee raise the minimum price of travel per mile from $2.70 to as much as $3.60. Portlanders who rely on taxis for transportation say the increase would be too much to bear. Councilors are considering placing a limit on the number of cabs licensed in the city. Details.
