The Examiner has an update on the saga of supervisor Alioto-Pier’s original proposal to considerably increase gate fees. (A gate fee is the rental price of a taxicab charged to cab drivers.)

A much more reasonable $5 increase (compared to nearly $20) was put forward by supervisor Aaron Peskin. Supervisor Chris Daly opposed any increase, notably commenting, “To charge the lowest-earning segments of the taxi industry for a large share of cleaning up the industry is the wrong way to go.”

Another blogging cab driver had a bunch of posts related to this news.
