Convenient Edmonton Airport Taxis You Can Trust
Edmonton, the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, may at times look like a quiet, almost sleepy city of the Great White North, especially during the cold winter months. This couldn’t be any further from the truth! Edmonton has more than its booming business environment, with the area’s prevalent oil industry (called “the Oil Capital of Canada”) and the many biotechnology companies based in the city. It has a thriving festival and culture scene, many theatres, great restaurants, and a large variety of entertainment outlets.
Whatever the reason is that brings you to the lush valley of the North Saskatchewan River that runs through the city, you certainly long to start your Edmonton adventure as soon as possible! And this couldn’t be any easier. All you have to do is spend 60 seconds before your trip and pre-book your Edmonton airport taxi with Welcome Pickups. As soon as your plane touches down at YEG, your professional English-speaking driver will be waiting for you at Arrivals, holding a sign with your name. You’ll receive their photo and details the day before, so you’ll know who to look for. Plus, nothing will change if anything unexpected happens and your flight is early or delayed, as Welcome Pickups drivers receive live updates on flight schedules.
After the initial meet and greet, your friendly driver will help you with your luggage and escort you to your pre-booked vehicle. You can ask them anything about the city and its best-kept secrets. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

They will keep going on Hwy 2N for 19.7km and then continue onto Gateway Blvd for 7.5km. At the end of Gateway Blvd, they will go down Saskatchewan Dr NW and Queen Elizabeth Park Road to cross the Walterdale Bridge and find themselves onto 105 St NW. From there, in the downtown area, your driver will take the local roads to drop you off at your exact destination.
