(D) Notice of any lesser rates being offered by the taxicab company shall be displayed in clear and legible letters immediately adjacent to the city rate card required in § 118.36 of this subchapter.
(E) The Committee on Administration may recommend amendments, alterations, or changes to any request filed by a taxicab company and approve such request on condition that the terms of such amendments, alterations, or changes are agreed to and met by the taxicab company.
(F) Notwithstanding the above, a taxicab company may offer reduced fares for regularly scheduled passengers provided that all such fares recorded in the driver's log are clearly noted as such.
