NYTWA Statement on Port Authority’s Proposed $4 Airport Fee for Taxis

June 26, 2019

By NYTWA Exec.Dir. Bhairavi Desai

“Drivers across this industry are in the worst crisis in generations, barely surviving, and an agency with mismanaged funds now wants to steal the food off their tables. This fee — on top of a devastating $2.50 congestion surcharge in Manhattan and after a 36% drop in revenue for yellow cab drivers — appears manufactured at the state level to wipe out a sector that has kept the airports moving for decades. 
“Drivers are in crisis but the Port Authority underestimates our resolve. If they want a fight, they got one. Drivers: get ready to shut down the airports.”
