NBTA Urges Congressional Action to Prohibit Unfair Ground Transportation Fees
Despite Congressional efforts in 2002 to curb local and state government taxes on ground transportation services, some terminals in the United States continue to charge fees to all for-hire vehicles. These fees are forcing out small businesses, curtailing competition and driving up costs for business travelers.
To remedy this problem, NBTA supports language that would prohibit a transportation terminal using federal funds for infrastructure overhaul from taxing pre-arranged ground transportation services. We urge Congress to re-examine the RIDE Act, thus ensuring the corporate travel community is not unjustly targeted.
