"Many of the cab drivers here..." Local Scams Tip by MrGQ
Local Scams, Washington D.C.: 13 reviews and 4 photos
Many of the cab drivers here are not very strong on the moral side. So watch out for they might take you for a ride! (no pun intended) :)
The system for DC cabs is based on zones rather than distance. A short ride crossing two zones can cost you double the fare of a long leisurely ride through one. Look at a zone map on the back of your driver's seat, and see if you can make sense of it . Some rides seem especially cheap while others are outrageously pricey. Locals know that identical trips in two different cabs rarely cost the same. Accept it or argue, it's up to you.
