Barrie Taxi Rates

In addition to mandating minimum insurance requirements, the City of Barrie Transportation Industry By-law 2006-265 sets the rates for in town fares that must be charged by all taxis licensed under the by-law.  The rates are programmed into each taximeter and inspected by The City of Barrie to ensure accuracy.

Fair fares

Our rates and fares do not change with the weather or your needs. We charge the same amount no matter what the weather is, what special events are happening, and no matter what the demand is. Whatever is going on, you can be assured that you will not be subjected to surge pricing when taking a Barrie Taxi.
