Credit Card Processors Are the First in a Series of Changes for D.C. Taxi Cabs
The improvement comes after months of delays that pushed several drivers to accept mobile payments via Square. The move may push some drivers to the sedan class, but overall travel just got a little easier for D.C. natives and visitors.

As a deadline approaches for D.C. taxi cabs to accept credit cards, the city’s top regulator says most drivers will be in compliance. But despite threats of impounded vehicles, up to 2,000 cabs won’t be ready.
“Any taxicab that is on the road seeking customers that has not complied with the requirement will be off the road. They will be impounded and they will stay off the road until they do comply,” said D.C. Taxicab Commission Chairman Ron Linton.
