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.
Spring is just around the corner and it's great to get out in the fresh air, but always remember to please make safe driving a top priority. Drink responsibly. Don't drink or text and drive! Remember to always call a taxi when leaving any party instead of driving yourself in the Richmond area. Planning ahead saves regrets later. Think of it as your Mom, Dad, son or daughter whose life is priceless that you might be making a difference. The biggest difference is the example you will show others. In the end, call a cab because there more comfortable than a paddy wagon and a whole lot cheaper than that "other" ride!
Oh no! Not again! ... again, really!!
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 the taxi providers to be able to better 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 companies regardless of the company you choose to ride with. The type of vehicle you ride in will 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 passengers around to their destinations. 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 companies on travel outside of the Richmond Metro Region. Flat rates and meter rates do not include gratuities for the driver. 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.
