Portland Taxi Service
Portland is made up of six geographical sections called ‘quadrants’ that make up the numerous neighbourhoods of this vibrant city, with each section offering unique experiences and places to explore while you are here. Even though these city neighbourhoods are well connected by public transport, the best and most efficient way to get around is still the use of a Portland taxi service where you can also get in depth information about these neighbourhoods directly from your local cab driver during your ride.

Fixed rate prices to popular destinations are available with most Portland taxi services.
Base fee – $3.50 (€3.30)
Rate per kilometre – $2.90 (€2.75)

How to get a Portland taxi
Unlike most US cities finding a Portland taxi isn’t the easiest of tasks, but some methods have proved to be more effective than others. If you are staying in a hotel you should easily find a taxi service outside the main doors or you can request a Portland cab from your hotel reception. If you are on the street and need a cab you can either locate the closest taxi rank or hail a cab straight from the street, but this method will be time consuming and we wouldn’t recommend it if you’re in a hurry.
The most efficient way to get a taxi in Portland would be to book your transfer in advance by either talking to the dispatcher of a taxi company directly or online through the company’s platform or using their app. Some of the most well known taxi companies in Portland are:
Portland Taxi Cab: (503) 256-5400
Radio Cab: (503) 227-1212
Broadway Cab: (503) 333-3333
