The minimum taxi fare is $15.00 and for each trip an additional $1 is added for airport surcharges.
The official limousine operators are Zion Limousine, Mechelle, Limousine, Black Pearl Limo, All Star Trans, Monarch Limousine and AMP Enterprises. Their fares are based on two passengers sharing a limousine. The rate rises by $10.00 for every additional passenger.
