New York airport taxis

NEW YORK is no different to London when it comes to the problems of unlicensed taxis (see last week’s issue).  The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), which operates both Kennedy and Newark airports, has announced a crackdown on unlicensed taxi drivers who hustle passengers.  Recently 18 people have been charged with illegal solicitation of ground transportation.  Arrivals should note that the rules are the same as for most airports.  Go to the official taxi line and make sure the driver switches on the meter.  The Taxi & Limousine Commission is conducting a flat fare programme for trips between (to and from) Manhattan and JFK International Airport with a charge of US$45 plus any tolls.  The meter will not be turned on and the night surcharge will not be added. www.jfk-airport.net/taxi.html
