Establishing Cab Fare at the Airport

There are many convenient transportation options available in Salt Lake, so it's always easy to get to your hotel, see the city, and catch your flight back home. You can take the Trax light-rail directly from the airport to downtown Salt Lake for only $2.50, Uber and Lyft are both popular and widely available, and Salt Lake has private taxicab companies and many private car and shuttle services.


Tips on Taking a Cab

Salt Lake's taxicabs serving the airport are bound by rate caps. Under these rules, cabs cannot charge more that $25 for a single-person ride to a destination west of (or including) 500 East (Zone 1), and cannot charge more than $30 for a single-person ride to a destination east of 500 East (Zone 2) with a maximum $5 per person additional charge with over two passengers.

If you're traveling to a destination outside of the Salt Lake City area (Zones 1 & 2), we recommend negotiating your rate with your driver prior to transport. It's an easy way to lock in your fare. Just agree on a price with your driver, fill out the card below, and have your driver sign it before you head to your destination.

Transportation network companies, such as Uber and Lyft, are an available transportation service from the airport but they are regulated by Utah State law and are not subject to the maximum fare requirement.
