If you frequent those crazy bastards who drive cabs in this town, you might want to check out the Post’s new Fare calculator. It’s a fully featured little Google Maps Application complete with the old taxi cab zones, as well as the new fares, plus traffic estimates and a full list of extras.
This fare was cheaper with the meter, but I tried a few others that would’ve been far more lucrative for the cabbies. I suspect that it’ll be a wash, overall. But, we won’t know for sure until after the new fares take effect. Of course, if the cabbies strike like they’re saying, it’s not real clear if that’ll give us good data to go on.
