The Taxi and Limousine Commission says that in the next month or so, it will start taxi sharing at its Midtown bus terminal and at one of the city's airports. But the TLC hasn't said which airport.

A trip from the airport to Midtown is expected to cost a flat fare of $20 per person.

The TLC launched taxi sharing at two locations on the Upper East Side and one on the Upper West in March. Agency officials say the plan hasn't caught on like they hoped, but that they are dedicated to the program.
