Council mulls hike in taxi fare


Tonight’s meeting is scheduled for 6:30 at City Hall.

Soper said cab companies also plan to lobby for an increase in Danvers, where the rate is $4 for the first mile.

“We’re trying to make all three cities uniform, so whatever city you go into, you’ll never have to ask how much,” he said.
