A. Taxicabs may be used to serve jointly from railroad stations or other public places of special assembly passengers or parties who are bound for the same, or approximately the same location, provided that a passenger or party who has engaged a taxicab may not be compelled to share the vehicle with others, if unwilling to do so. Drivers may not refuse service in order to effect more profitable grouping.
B. When a taxicab is occupied by more than one passenger or party bound for different destinations, each passenger or party, as the case may be, shall be charged the fare recorded on the meter at the time of arrival at destination, except that a passenger or party may not be charged more than the fare applicable at the established rates for transportation over the shortest and most direct route.
C. Solicitation of others while enroute to the destination of passengers or parties initially occupying the taxicab is prohibited.
