Other mistake: When Gecko and his future son-in-law are passengers in a cab the meter reads $2.90 and the extra fee indicates $1.50. Since the ride was several minutes, the meter should have increased well beyond $2.90. Further, there is not a extra fee of $1.50 allowed in Manhattan.According to the official NY Taxi Web site: Minimum taxi fare is $2.50.Additional charges are $0.40 per 1/5 of a mile (at or above 6 mph) or for 2 minutes of time stopped or traveling below 6 mph.The night-time surcharge is $0.50 for rides beginning from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.The peak hour weekday surcharge is $1.00 and is charged for rides from 4 - 8 p.m. weekdays.
