AUGUSTA, Ga.---Masters is just around the corner, and that means...more green. We're not talking about the jackets--we're talking cash.

Local cab companies went before the Augusta Public Services Committee today, looking to drive up rates for the Masters. A ride to and from Augusta National to Washington Road hotels will run you a flat $30 each way.

And for the first time in four years, cab rates are also increasing, with a minimum $5 fare whether it's Masters or not.

Is a higher fare fair? is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
