Bethel cab drivers raising fares for the first time since early 2001

Taxi fares in Bethel are rising for the first time in six years. Cab fares are regulated by the City and for about a year the cab industry has been pushing the Bethel City Council to raise them. At their last meeting, the council approved a plan that will allow cabbies to charge an additional dollar for most trips.
