Mayor Emanuel; Taxi drivers deserve a fare increase now.

To be delivered to mayor Emanuel

Petition Statement

Make Chicago an immigrant friendly city by giving taxi drivers a long overdue fare increase.
There are currently 142 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Chicago taxi drivers have not had fare increase since 2006, and Chicago ranks 125th lowest cab fare of all U.S. cities and 27th of large cities. Since 2005, the cost of living has increased by 19.1% and lease rates for taxicab have increased 20 - 36% and gas prices have increased 60%. Taxi drivers work an average of 13.1 hours per day for less than $5.00 per hour. The United Taxidrivers Community Council (UTCC) calls for 22% increase in fares that would bring Chicago into the top ten taxi fares for large cities.
