Hi everyone. I am booking a cruise to Bermuda on RCI, leaving from Philadelphia. I wondered if anyone knew the taxi charge from the airpot to the RCI terminal or the best web sites to obtain this information.
Thanks in advance
Hey, seekes49, we are also going on a cruise from Philly to Bermuda. When is yours??? I understand that the port is only about 1 mile from the airport. At least that is what the Marriott at the airport told me. Shouldn't be too awfully much I wouldn't think.... We are going Sept 22........
Tariff fare rates must be posted in all Philadelphia taxicabs.
Rates for service in the City of Philadelphia are as follows:
First 1/7 mile (flag drop) or fraction thereof: $2.70
Each additional 1/7 mile or fraction thereof: $.30
Each 54 seconds of wait time or fraction thereof: $.30 Airport flat rate (to and from Center City Zone): $26.25
For areas outside Center City, the P.P.A. has authorized the taxi drivers to add $1.50 per trip egress fee as an additional charge to the fare and is payable at destination.
Center City Zone is defined between the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers as falling between South Street on the south and Fairmount Avenue on the north. West of the Schuylkill River to 38th Street between JFK Boulevard around 30th Street Station (2900 Arch Street) to it’s intersection with 32nd and Market Street and along a line west on Market to it’s intersection with 38th Street, south on 38th Street to it’s intersection with Spruce Street, east on Spruce Street to it’s intersection with South Street.
The minimum fare including the egress fee for any trip starting at the airport: $10.00
* Tips and tolls are not included in the fare
** Fares are per cab not per person
Its a bit confusing but a good map of Philly will help decipher it for you.
Have a great cruise you guys!!
BTW, if you get a cab with a Skull and Crossbones front plate and a Sikh driver named Ben you are in for a ride worthy of a Six Flags thrill ride.
