The airport taxis can be found outside of door #7 in Terminal 1 and outside of door #11 in Terminal 2.
The Salt Lake City International Airport taxis are available twenty-four hours a day, and do not require an advanced reservation. However, a reservation may be recommended for passengers arriving on very early morning flights, or by passengers who require a special vehicle for the transport of a disabled person. Special vehicles with wheelchair lifts are readily available, but it is best to call the taxi company in advance of your arrival. Assistance for passengers with disabilities can also be arranged with the airline company concerned. A taxi will cost between $20.00 and $25.00 for a trip to the city centre.
Ute Cab at Salt Lake City International Airport
For decades, Ute Cab has been a commendable taxi service for Salt Lake residents and visitors. They offer reliable services, comfortable vehicles and professional drivers who are polite and friendly. The drivers are also highly knowledgeable of the areas in which they drive, and can provide plenty of assistance with regards to the best places of accommodation and tourist attractions etc. Taxis are available to all areas, including the Salt Palace Convention Centre, hotels of the city, the University of Utah, the Rio Tinto Stadium and the surrounding resorts that include Great Salt Lake, Antelope Island, Park City, Deer Valley, The Canyons, Snowbird, Alta and the Olympic Park.
Taxis from or to Salt Lake City International Airport are metered, which means that the customer’s charge will depend on the distance travelled. The metered taxi rates are regulated by Salt Lake City, and may be displayed inside the taxi. Additional charges over and above the metered rates may also be applicable, such as a small charge for oversized baggage items, more than four passengers and for waiting times. It is also customary to tip the taxi driver (about 15 to 30% is considered as reasonable). Tips make up a large part of the driver’s take home money, and are therefore appreciated. Be careful to only select authorised and metered taxi services at the airport, as there could be other unmetered vehicles posing as taxis. Their rates may not be accurate, and the passenger stands a chance of being overcharged.
