One more reason why I’m not coming back after all these years: the hidden, unannounced $3 charge for taxi fares. It’s not just that it’s there; it’s not told to you until after you’ve paid with the card, the convenience of which is promoted.

The use of the card may cost the merchant (cab driver) a modest charge, but he or she has opted to make that means of payment available for his or her convenience to ensure payment.
