My husband and I have been going to St. Thomas for years. We always complain to one another how ridiculous the taxi fares are on the island. In anyother place, you pay "X" amount of dollars to go from one point to another. In St.Thomas, while the rates are regulated, supposedly, they charge you per person. So, if you want to go from say Frenchman's Cove to a restaurant just down the hill in Yacht Haven, you have to pay $6.00 per person down and the same back. If you have a family of 5, that's $30 each direction. That is definitely detrimental for the local restaurants because family's will not spend that kind of money, in general, just to go have lunch or dinner. A different system for fares needs to be addressed to make St. Thomas more appealing for families.
