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.

The companies have also agreed to accept payment in cash or by Mastercard, Visa and American Express.
