COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 080834

 

Amending Chapter 76, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 76-192, Passenger fares, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter that increases the fees and the airport fee.

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Chapter 76, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, is hereby amended by repealing Section 76-192, Passenger fares, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter, to read as follows:

 

Sec. 76-192.  Passenger fares.

 

(a)   Use of meter required.  While in service as a taxicab, each vehicle shall be operated with its meter engaged. 

 

(b)   Fares.  The passenger fares for taxicab service shall be meter-based as established herein and in accordance with the following standards: 

 

(1)    Initial drop.  The meter charge recorded on the meter at the start of the trip. 

 

(2)    Mileage charge.  A charge for each 1/10 portion of a mile. The current mileage charge for each 1/10 portion of a mile is twenty-one cents ($.21).

 

(3)    Waiting time.  A charge for each increment of waiting time. The term "waiting time," as used in this subsection, means the time when the taxicab is not in motion from the time of acceptance to the time of discharge of a passenger, but does not include any time the taxicab is not in motion, if due to any other cause than the request, act or fault of the passenger. The first three minutes elapsing prior to the arrival of a passenger at the beginning of a trip shall not be included in computing waiting time, and in no event shall any time be included as waiting time for any period prior to the time fixed for the arrival of the taxicab by the prospective passenger when calling for a cab. 

 

(4)    Traffic delay time.  A charge for each increment of delay time. The term "traffic delay time," as used in this subsection, shall be that time as set and determined by the taximeter, provided no traffic delay time shall accrue on the taximeter unless the taxicab is stopped in traffic or proceeding at a speed of less than ten miles per hour. 

 

(5)    Airport fee.  A charge to off-set the established airport trip fee as determined by the Director of Aviation.

(6)    Fare rate.  The meter-based rate of fare shall be $2.50 initial drop fee plus $2.10 per mile. The waiting time/traffic delay time shall be twenty-one cents ($.21) every 18 seconds (the twenty-one cent waiting time/traffic delay time charge is 1/10 of the per mile charge). An additional charge of $0.50 per trip shall be charged for each passenger over two passengers.
