A Pittsburgh taxi company wants to see more green when you step into their yellow cabs.
Pittsburgh Transportation Group (PTG) is asking the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission for a rate hike.
Yellow Cab’s parent PTG wants a surcharge of 17 cents a mile to replace all others, including the $1.15 fee on the flag drop.
This would raise the current rates of $1.75 a mile to $1.92 a mile.
Company President Jamie Campolongo said the current surcharge is outdated and gives drivers who make short trips more money than those who drive longer trips.
