Four taxi companies are authorized to take walk-up passengers from Tucson International Airport. Under their contracts with the Tucson Airport Authority, rates from the airport are set at $4.50 for the flag drop and $2.25 per mile. (There can also be a $22.00 per-hour charge for wait time.) Otherwise, there is no additional charge for baggage or for more than one passenger going to the same destination. A chart below shows mileage estimates to selected lodging establishments.

Although the State of Arizona does not regulate ground transportation rates, the four taxi operators have agreed to honor the rates as part of a proposal process with the TAA. The companies have also agreed to accept payment in cash or by Mastercard, Visa and American Express.
