A new survey of New York City taxi passengers shows that a majority of them earn at least $50,000 a year, and yet a significant number of them say the cost of a cab ride is too high.

Results of the electronic survey, begun in October, so far show that 42 percent of passengers earn more than $100,000 a year and another 19 percent make $50,000 or more (16 percent declined to answer). But nearly half of those surveyed (46 percent) said that taxi rides were too costly.
