Transportation Returns: Taxi Surcharge Expiring, Bikeshare and Car2Go Reopen
We can move again! With the remains of Hurricane Sandy turning into what amounts to a heavy drizzle, D.C.'s transportation services are reopening. Metro already announced that service is being restored at low levels at 2 p.m., while car-sharing service Car2Go, which closed at 7 p.m., started renting again at 10 a.m.
Capital Bikeshare is set to open again at 1 p.m. Meanwhile, the $15 emergency taxi surcharge that provided a windfall for any cabbies willing to go out in the hurricane expires today at noon. So much for the comparative cheapness of Uber fares.
And speaking of the sedan service, it looks like it kept running all night on normal fares.
