Do you know that ALL Houston Taxi drivers charge the same airport flat zone rates and the same exact meter rates... ?

The reason ALL Houston Taxis charge the same exact rates is because the City of Houston regulates the Airport Flat Zone Rates and the taxi meter rates, even though we are supposed to be self-employed as independent contractors. The City of Houston inspects every Houston Taxi, every year, and when the inspection is passed then the City of Houston places a City of Houston inspection sticker on the lower right side of the taxi windshield. The City of Houston inspects every Houston Taxi meter to make sure that it is operating properly.

Do you know that many Houston ex-taxi drivers are limousine drivers.... ?

It's true and a fact. All you have to do is check with the City of Houston for the statistics on how many taxi drivers hold current limousine licenses and how many limousine licenses have been issued to Houston taxi drivers.

Does the Airport Flat Zone rate apply when staying at a hotel located at the airport and then traveling to a location in Houston... ?

The Airport Flat Zone rates only apply when you are only going to/from the airport terminals. If you are staying at a hotel located at the airport then you will be charged the taxi meter rate. If you even stop along the way to go to the store or stop somewhere else, then you will also be charged the taxi meter rate and the Airport Flat Zone rate will be voided out. The Airport Flat Zone rate is a non-stop trip to/from airport terminals.

How do I find the estimated rate only and I do not want a scheduled trip pickup... ?

To find your estimated rates, go to http://taxicabhouston.com/  You will find all your information there. If your trip is not within the airport flat zone rates, then you need to use the following formula in finding your estimated rate. First, go to a map service and find your mileage. When you find your mileage, use this formula. Your mileage x $1.65 per mile + $4.00 for the first mile = your estimated rate.
