  • Taxi Drivers: ZERO
    • There is no meter. Everything is a flat fee between zones. Many drivers charge more than they are supposed to for fares. Always ask ahead of time what the fare will be.
    • NO TIPPING TAXI DRIVERS unless they are handling a lot of luggage or there was some extraordinary service provided (they waited for you in the store).
  • Grocery Baggers:
    • The baggers are usually elderly men. Although they may be wearing a uniform, there are not receiving any salary. They are trying to pick up some extra money.
