Taxi rides in the District could be more expensive on inauguration day.

The D.C. Taxi Cab Commission is considering a surcharge for extra passengers.

Under the proposal, drivers would be allowed to charge a one dollar fee for each additional passenger after the first.

This would be the first time taxis in D.C. would be allowed to charge an added fee during an inauguration.
