Fredericton taxi fares

Last week, every cab company in Fredericton upped their fare price. With record-high gas prices, companies said there was no way out.

Most fares went up to $1, and for some distances the increase was less. For ABC Taxi, the minimum fare for short distances was $5.50. Now it is $6.

Mike Bacon, owner of ABC Taxi, said there was no way out of this decision.

“Right now, every little bit helps. There was nothing else we could do. We had to make a decision that was fair for our business.”

In New Brunswick, gas prices went up last week to 142.2 cents per liter.

He said the fare increase has helped cab drivers afford buying gas, which will ultimately make a difference in their income as well.

Bacon said every company is going through the same situation.

“There’s only so much we can do. Cab prices in Fredericton are really low compared to other cities. We are still very inexpensive.”

But the prices aren’t low enough for many in Fredericton. Brendan Lee Young, a UNB Graduate student, says he spends around $60 in cabs every month. He said this cost will definitely go up now.

“This would mean that I may have to choose very carefully where I cab and where I walk. Perhaps even using the Public transit system even more.”

But Young said that while he will be on a tighter budget, he understands why companies needed to raise their prices.

What you do is up to you

The best way to get around San Francisco is on public transportation; anything that involves parking is a lose, and our taxi service is outrageously expensive and unreliable.

If you want to play tourist, the $34.75 provides admission to five attractions (valid for nine days) and includes a 7-day MUNI ...ke care of the other days. []

works well for transit between San Francisco and Oakland, but I'd also encourage you to consider taking the . It's well worth the $5 on a nice day. []

There's a nice article on scooters in this month's issue of , but I have no clue where one would actually rent one.

craigslist has an , as does . As the dates draw closer, the , , and will start to list things.

Revivals and cheesy French movies

Thanks for the compliment. I enjoy your lists too, but don't seem to see many great movies at film fests and don't rent DVDs either.
All the revivals were new to me (which is of course why I went and saw them). Until I get a nice TV, I won't get a DVD player, so there are many classic movies that I'd still like to see. When I saw my friend's hdtv, he said that even DVDs do not look that sh...its comedy. Long Engagement was more serious, although it still had its comic bits.
However, the worst two bits of pretension from last year's French movies (that came to Bay Area) were:
1. Secret Things (which had a black bird flying around to portend bad things about to happen).
2. Who Killed Bambi (which had some bizarre forest scenes between the protagonist and antagonist).
