  • 20 minute gap between transfers

    Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.

  • Regular Car Sanitisation

    Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol

  • Contactless ride

    When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.

  • Sanitiser in every car

    We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

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.

Portland Cab Prices

The Portland taxi rate cost is set by the city, and the most recent tariffs have been in effect since January of 2012. Official calibrated taximeters are used to ensure these tariffs are upheld and are installed in all official Portland cabs. The cab ride cost is made up of an initial base fee, a per kilometre charge and a waiting fee per hour, if applicable. 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)

Standing / Waiting fee per hour – $ 40.00 (€37.95)

There is no separate night fare for a Portland taxi service. There is however a $3.50 (€3.30) extra charge for transfers to and from the airport and a $1.00 (€0.90) charge per extra passenger. Tipping the driver (10-15%) is standard practise when using a Portland cab.

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

Booking your Portland Taxi Service in advance

The best way to get a taxi in Portland would be to pre book your transfer in advance as hailing a taxi on the street or coming across a cab is not as easy as you might expect.

Welcome Pickups offer transfers from Portland airport with low cost fixed-rates which you can pre-book, pay for in advance and for added value also offer a flexible cancellation policy if and when needed.

Portland Taxi Tips

  1. The Portland taxi fare rate is the same throughout the day so there is no extra charge for using a taxi at night.
  2. There is an extra charge of $3.50 (€3.30) when taking a taxi to or from the airport.
  3. Finding a taxi on the street in Portland isn’t easy, we therefore definitely recommend pre-booking all your transfers in advance.
