    No. Please do not increase taximeter rates. It is already extremely expensive to live in NYC. Plus this change would hurt students studying in NYC by making taxis unaccessible to many of them.

    Many senior citizens and people with disabilities rely on taxis and for-hire vehicles because of mobility issues. Please keep fares as low as possible for them.
