DC to Dulles Taxi Fare Quiz: How Much?

If you take a DC taxi from downtown Washington to Dulles Airport, what do think the fare should be?$50? $60? $70?

Better yet, what have you been charged, and why did you pay?

I ask this as I just had my very first Dulles taxi ride where the driver used actual mileage for the rate.

DC cabbies are supposed to use miles but they never do. Hacks always want to offer me an imaginary fixed price that varies wildly.

So what is the real price from McPherson Square to Dulles? $51 dollars.

How close were you?
