Flat Rate Charges
Flat Rate Zone Boundaries
The flat rate is charged in lieu of the metered rate by all Medallion Taxicabs for trips between the Philadelphia International Airport and the Center City Zone. The Flat Rate Zone is defined as the area between the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers and between Washington Avenue on the south and Fairmount Avenue on the north. West of the Schuylkill River, the northern boundary continues west along the north side of 30th Street Station on 2900 Arch Street then southward on 30th Street to its intersection with Market Street. The boundary proceeds west along the north side of Market Street to 48th Street, south on 48th Street to Spruce Street and east on Spruce Street to its intersection with South Street. Any destination that falls within these boundaries is eligible for the Center City flat rate.
Flat Rate from the Center City Zone to the Airport: $28.50 per one way trip regardless of the number of passengers.
Flat Rate from the Airport to the Center City Zone: $28.50 per one way trip for one (1) passenger. A $1.00 per passenger surcharge for each additional passenger after the first will be added to the meter after the flat rate fee is engaged on the meter by the driver after leaving the Airport. This applies only to passengers over the age of twelve (12). If the trip necessitates a drop-off at more than one destination in the Center City Zone, the following applies: the flat rate and all additional per passenger surcharges of $1.00 each are to be collected upon departure of the first passenger in the Center City Zone. The driver will then reset the meter initiating a new flag drop using the standard meter rates above for each of the remaining passengers if each requires a separate drop-off.
