What is the base fare?
The base fare refers to the cost of the ride before any discounts or additional charges, such as tolls, parking, highway fees,etc., are applied.
What is time based billing?
Time-based billing is used for rides to which a flat rate does not apply. You will be billed for the time the vehicle and chauffeur are available to you. Time-based rates are sometimes referred to as hourly rates. These rides are also subject to a positioning charge (see below).
What is a positioning charge?
The positioning charge refers to the cost incurred for the vehicle and chauffeur to travel to your pickup location and return from your drop-off point. Most time-based rides are subject to a fixed positioning charge, which is based on vehicle type and billed at 1 times the hourly rate. For time-based routes outside the Halifax Regional Municipality, there is a time-based positioning charge, which is based on actual travel time and billed at the hourly rate.
What is meant by waiting time?
Waiting time is defined as the length of time that elapses between a scheduled pickup, or in the case of airport pickups, the moment the client reports to the Ground Transportation Information office (GTI), and getting into the reserved vehicle. All trips have a ten-minute grace period, after which a charge of $10 is applied for every ten minutes a chauffeur is waiting.
What are stop charges?
Stop charges are billed one of two ways: Passenger-requested stops that are on route are charged at $10 per ten-minute increment.Passenger-requested stops that require significant deviation from the route are charged the applicable hourly rate for the complete ride.
How are tolls handled?
The rates for all airport and HRM service already include the toll fee, if any.
What additional fees may apply?
Additional fees are miscellaneous charges such as meals and beverages for large groups if required by the client.
