WASHINGTON (AP) - With the nation’s capital about to be under a snow emergency, cab rides are about to become more expensive.

The D.C. Taxicab Commission announced Wednesday that snow emergency fares will be in effect Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. That means cabs can add a $15 surcharge to the metered fare.

The surcharge is meant to entice cab drivers to keep working so that people can use cabs as needed.
