  • Taxis: did rise. That is: rises with any significant rise in fuel prices. Metro Buses (city-run mass transit): typically much slower to change cost to consumer since these are typically run by a city or some other government department. Typically the government is willing to subsidize the increased cost of fuel for a temporary period. If the increased cost continues then fares will (eventually) be raised to cover the cost.

      Oh and its fare, not fair.
  • Not just taxi's either everything is transported by fuel. Our city busses run on natural gas and just for added info, my case manager drives me to my appointments in a hybrid. Fuel paid for by the government. Thank you fine tax paying citizens for taking care of me since I got sick.

      Amtrak operates diesel, electric, and dual-mode (diesel or electric) locomotives. But if your electric comes from burning oil/gas you're really just running in circles.

      I think Greyhound has their own reserve.
