Cost of a Dallas Taxi

The taxi tariff in the United States of America is officially set by cities or districts. The taxi fares in Dallas were last set in January 2012 and published in the official tariff ordinance. They are binding for all taxis companies within the compulsory downtown area and may not be exceeded or undercut. This is ensured by officially calibrated taximeters installed in the vehicles.

The price of a Dallas cab depends on several factors. These are the route to be travelled, the journey time and of course, traffic conditions. Generally speaking, these are the applicable fares for a Dallas cab:

Base fare: $2.25 (€2)

Kilometre price: $1.18 (€1)

Standing and waiting time: $18.00 (€16)

It is also important to note here that there is an additional charge of $2.00 (€1.80) for each extra passenger and a surcharge for airport transfers, $4.12 (€3.7). Always make sure that the taximetre is on when entering the taxi, or ask the driver for an approximate fare for your destination.

How to get a Taxi in Dallas

There are plenty of areas in Dallas where you can hail a cab: downtown Dallas or in the Uptown, Lower Greenville or Deep Ellum entertainment districts. If you need to take a taxi from the airport, you will find a stand outside every terminal.

Alternatively, you can call a cab company such as Dallas Yellow Cab (also available in an app) or head to the hotel reception and ask them to order one for you.

Some taxis do take credit cards but it is better to always have cash in hand, just in case. Generally tips are expected in the United States. When calculating how much to leave, make sure it’s at least 10% of the fare. Anything less than that may be interpreted as bad service.

Benefits of Booking a Dallas Taxi in Advance

Everyone is familiar with the situation where they have to wait for several minutes or even an hour outside the airport to find a taxi to their hotel.

Welcome Pickups will ensure this won’t happen to you. Our friendly driver will be waiting for you outside your terminal, escort you to your vehicle and then take you wherever you want to go. So book your airport transfer today, sit back, relax and let Welcome take care of the rest.
