Tipping your driver is encouraged as this is an American custom and your generosity should be based on the level of service received from your driver.
        We do not set the taxi rates we charge as we are regulated same as a public utility. All taxis have the exact same rates as any other, no extra fees, no minimums, no booking or reservation fees, no surcharges. In many cases, we are finding our rates to be cheaper than what Uber and Lyft acknowledges they are charging because of all their add on fees, particularly the added surcharges. Taxi Rates are approved by the local Board of Supervisors and Richmond City Council in the areas we serve and current rates have not changed since 2009. All taxis in this region are obligated by local ordinance to charge the set rates and not charge above or below the posted rates for travel inside the region. Rates for long distances are more flexible as your destination will be outside the local REGULATED area. We appreciate your understanding.
                                                                                                                                                     All taxi drivers in our region are required to have in plain view their taxi operator's license which will state issued by HENRICO COUNTY, CHESTERFIELD COUNTY or the CITY OF RICHMOND. Please do not accept a ride from any taxi OR vehicle operating as if a taxi if the driver can not show you a valid permit from one of these areas. Remember it is these permits that let you know you are riding with a safe driver in a safe vehicle. Please be kind to your driver by remembering open containers of alcohol are not allowed in the vehicles. Be generous to your driver by tipping as taxi drivers do not make hourly wages and depend on your patronage and gratuities to support their families and themselves.

   Please call us if you have any questions or would like more information about our rates and services.  

We hope you'll call us and thanks for visiting us at Gentleman Taxi!
