    In NYC they’re pretty reasonable. There is a flat rate for use from the airport to certain points. I believe to Manhattan it’s around $45. Otherwise their is a base rate of around $2.50 and then the price is based on either distance or time in traffic.

    The NYC TLC website has more in-depth information if you want more specifics.
