Bowing to inflation
cit cab fares


Inflation, soaring to near nation-
wide highs, has managed to leave its
mark on every facet of urban life, most
recently, Ann Arbor taxi cab fares. City
Council voted at first reading last night
to raise cab fares 28 per cent-from 70
cents initially and 10 cents for each ad-
ditional one-seventh mile, to an initial
fee of $1 and 10 cents for each additional
eighth of a mile.
A clause in the ordinance provides for
a five per cent discount for passengers
over 60 years to be effected at specified
hours of the day. Councilman David
Fisher (R-Fourth Ward) brought up the
squestion of offering a discount to han-
dicapped passengers as well as to
senior citizens. He also suggested the
discount to as-much as 10per cent. ,
berg (D-First Ward), chairperson of;
the Taxi Cab Board, said the five per
cent discount was a step in the right
direction, since there has never before
been any sort of taxi cab discount at all.
She explained the cab owners were
probably reluctant to offer a larger cut
because they are the ones to loose
The present policy, Greenberg poin-
ted out, is for the, driver and the com-
pany to split the fare fifty-fifty. When
the discount is implemented the driver
will still pocket 50 per cent while the
cab owners take the full five per cent

Greenberg said, however, that she
plans to lobby for a ten per cent benefit
for both senior citizens and handicap-
ped persons before the ordinance
comes back to council for final ap-
Councilman Earl Greene (D-Second
Ward) expressed concern over the bulk
of the cab fare hike. "I'm not sure
whether this is within any inflationary
guidelines," he said.
The council member also said he
feels the present football Saturday
policy of charging each passenger
separately for his or her ride rather
than allowing a group of passengers to
ride for a single fare is backwards.
Greene said he favors a football rush
discount which would probably benefit
the cab companies in the end since it
would encourage taxi cab travel to and
from the stadium.

'Management by Objective,'as long as you

They also let you grow in the direction that
