The result of a review of the taxi industry first ordered in 2011 will come to the Licensing and Standards Committee next week, containing 40 recommendations from city staff.
The recommendations include a new $25 "vomit" fee that can be charged if a passenger "soils" a vehicle and studying the possibility of equipping every vehicle with electronic payment options.
Among the recommendations includes one to allow drivers the option of charging passengers $25 dollars as soon as they get in the vehicle, which like paying before you pump gas, is seen as a way to keep drivers safer and prevent people from skipping payment.
City staff believe the changes, many of which that are centred around the way cabs are licensed, will keep fares in line, by cutting out some of the middlemen in the current system.
Toronto's taxi rates are some of the highest among comparable North American cities.
No rate increase is being recommended and there is a call for a study on shields that separate a passenger and a driver.
If approved the new recommendations would require anyone acquiring a new taxi license to ensure their vehicle was equipped to handle passengers in wheelchairs.
