Taxi fares in Iqaluit rise to $9
Council approved increase in April 2022 as part of 2-year plan
New taxi fare rates are in effect in Iqaluit.
As of Monday, the general fare for a ride with Caribou Tuktu Cabs Inc. rose to $9. The fare for elders remains $5 for a ride, and children under the age of 10 ride for free if they are accompanying an adult.
In April 2022 Iqaluit city council passed a bylaw to increase taxi fares over the course of two years.
The previous $8 cab fare was set that month, and as part of the bylaw the fare was increased to $8.75 the following month.
According to the bylaw, the standard taxi fare rate will increase to $9.25 in 2024.
