New York cab drivers are logging fewer miles but making more money. The city's Taxi and Limousine Commission has released ridership figures since last May, when a 26-percent fare hike went into effect. The higher price has chased away some riders. The average cab logged about two fewer miles a day from May through December, compared with the same period in 2003. But revenue is up by about 50 dollars a cab, to 314-dollars a day. The fare hike was aimed at covering the increased cost of living for drivers and paying for new technology, like electronic tracking and credit-card fares.
