Taxi (Effective February 6, 2023):

The Philadelphia Parking Authority currently regulates taxi fares in Philadelphia.
Tariff fare rates must be posted in all Philadelphia taxicabs.
Rates for service in the City of Philadelphia are as follows:

Metered Rate: 
  • First 1/10 mile (flag drop) or fraction thereof: $2.70
  • Each additional 1/10 mile or fraction thereof: $0.25
  • Each 37.6 seconds of wait time: $0.25
Flat Rate from the Center City Zone to the Airport:
  • $32.00 per one way trip regardless of the number of passengers.
Flat Rate from the Airport to the Center City Zone:
  • $32.00 per one way trip for one passenger.
    Each additional passenger above one must pay $1 except for children twelve and under.

    The flat rate is charged in lieu of the metered rate by all Medallion Cabs for trips between the Philadelphia International Airport and the zone described below. This fare includes the airport egress fee. A $1.00 per passenger surcharge for each additional passenger after the first is to be added to the meter after the flat fee is engaged on the meter by the driver when leaving the airport. This applies only to passengers over the age of twelve. If the trip necessitates a drop-off at more than one destination in the Center City zone, the following applies: The flat rate and all additional per passenger surcharges of $1.00 each are to be collected upon departure of the first passenger in the Center City flat rate zone. The driver will then reset the meter initiating a new flag drop for each of the remaining passengers if each requires a separate drop-off.

    New boundaries for flat rate trips between PHL and the “Center City Zone” effective July 1, 2017
    The Center City Zone is defined between the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers and between Washington Avenue on the south and Fairmount Avenue on the north. West of the Schuylkill river, the northern boundary continues west along the north side of 30th Street Station on 2900 Arch Street, then southward on 30th Street to its intersection with Market Street. The boundary proceeds west along the north side of Market Street to 48th Street, south on 48th Street to Spruce Street and east on Spruce Street to its intersection with South Street.

    If the fare goes over $12.00, a $1.50 egress fee must be added.
  • Tolls are to be paid by the customer to cover roundtrips. Tolls that are only charged one-way such as the bridges to New Jersey must be paid regardless of the direction of travel. Tolls that are charged each way such as turnpike tolls shall be doubled to compensate the driver for the return trip.
Airport Egress Fee:
