How much is the taxi fare? Using Boosted Decision Tree Regression to predict taxi fare
**Problem**<br> This problem is to predict the fare of a taxi trip in New York City. At first glance, the fare may seem to depend simply on the distance traveled. However, taxi vendors in New York charge varying amounts for other factors such as additional passengers, paying with a credit card instead of cash, and so on. This prediction could help taxi providers give passengers and drivers estimates on ride fares. <br><br> **Using Boosted Decision Tree Regression to predict taxi fare**<br> <br> The finished model<br> https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laploy/ML.NET/master/GitHub-Issue/github-issue-azureML-model.JPG <br> Question and Data<br> Question: How much is the taxi fair?<br> <br> Dataset: <br> taxi-fare-train.csv https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laploy/ML.NET/master/Taxi-fair/taxi-fare-train.csv taxi-fare-score.csv<br> https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laploy/ML.NET/master/Taxi-fair/taxi- fare-score.csv<br> <br> taxi-fare-batch.csv<br> https://raw.githubusercontent.com/laploy/ML.NET/master/Taxi-fair/taxi-fare-batch.csv<br> <br> **Dataset description**<br> vendor_id: A code indicating the TPEP provider that provided the record. <br> rate_code: The final rate code in effect at the end of the trip. <br> 1.
