Rhode Island Holds Off On Minimum Limo Ride Charges

Posted on November 13, 2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — New rules regarding the operation of limousines and other non-taxi public sedans went into effect Monday. The state Public Utilities Commission will hold off on enforcing a controversial provision of the new rules.

A spokesman for the state Public Utilities Commission said they will not enforce a $40 minimum charge on limousine rides until a court weighs in on the issue. Four limousine companies have sued the PUC over the new minimum, that went into effect Monday. Attorney Michael Horan, who represents the plaintiffs, said the minimum makes no sense in a small state where rides often cost much less.
