Cab driver from charged me $78 from Times Square to EWR. I paid it because I hate confrontation. And it’s only $30 more. And the guy probably needs the money more than I do. Should I have fought it?

78 sounds about right to me when you take the $15 toll into consideration

What would you guys have done? Idk if i should have...

I’ve paid $100 before depending on the time of day. Why do you think it should have been $48?

I typically take Uber I guess I’m out of touch with reality. Glad I didn’t fight the dude over it, then

Uber from W57th can range anywhere from 45-85 to get to Newark. Just depends on time and demand.

Use Arro. Breaks down fare. This problem was solved 5 years ago, yet here you are

Sounds about right. This said, PATH + Airtrain is unbeatable (if you’re not schlepping too much luggage)

The yellow cab rate is spot on

The printed receipt and touch screen in the back of the cab also breaks down the fare...

The 15$ toll is for entering nyc not exiting

@D3: as OW2 said, you have to pay r/t tolls

As far as I remember there are 3 parts to this. Metered fare plus $15 (for the fact the cabbie cant pick up from Newark) plus round trip tolls. In this case, therefore its around $45 plus whats on the meter

D2 is correct. And don’t forget that there’s a Turnpike toll too, not just the tunnel

True that (or u take route 1)
