Richmond VA Taxi Rates

Be sure to call ahead whether it be a ride to or from the airport or a ride home from a great evening out. We are here to meet all your transportation needs.

  Welcome to our site. We give you all the information about rates, long distance rates, some pointers that will save you time and money and some recommendations about companies we think you will enjoy riding with either to the airport or just around town.

    The new year 2015 is in full swing! Remember to please make being safe a top priority as you are out and about. Please drink responsibly.
Remember to always play it safe by calling a taxi when leaving any party instead of driving yourself. If your planning to let someone else drive, make sure they are safe and sober. Planning ahead saves regrets later. Think of it as your Mom, Dad, son or daughter whose life is not replaceable that you can help now by not having regrets later as well as yourself one day by not becoming a victim of a drunk driver. The biggest difference we see is the example you show others. Call a cab because were a lot more comfortable than a paddy wagon and a whole lot cheaper than that "other" ride!

              "Ops! Looks like I'm not going home... not now at least!"

  Early morning pick up
times that are reserved go quickly as many try to get to the airport and train around the same time. Please plan your travel in advance and you will also be helping our taxi providers to be able to best accommodate your requests.

   The information presented on this site is the latest information available for regulated taxi rates in Richmond, VA and the surrounding counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico. Cab rates are regulated by local laws in our areas served, so the rate will be the same for all taxi companies regardless of the company you choose to ride with. The kind of vehicle you ride in will also not effect the rates on travel inside the Richmond region. Taxi rates have remained the same since Jan. 01, 2009 even while gas prices have gone up and down several times in the last five years. Drivers rely on your tips to help cover these fluctuations as cab drivers pay for most, if not all the gas they consume while driving you around to your destination.The Total fare is indicated on the taxi meter and reflects ALL charges except tolls. Taxi meters must be OPERATING at all times while operating inside the Richmond region. Flat Rates are available from most taxi companies on travel outside of the Richmond Metro Region, but are up to the discretion of each company. Tipping your driver is encouraged as this is an American custom and your generosity should be based on the level of service received from your driver. Gratuities are not part of the rate structure as with some car services, so the drivers really appreciate your generosity as they are out there for you and your safety.
