Syracuse Taxi Service

Syracuse is a beautifully preserved city nestled beside Onondaga Lake Park in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. The downtown area boasts streets full of Neoclassical and Gothic buildings and a wide selection of activities ranging from sightseeing, shopping and dining to year-round festivals and city parks. Some top-rated attractions in Downtown Syracuse include the free Eerie Canal Museum, the Museum of Science and Technology, the historic Landmark Theatre, the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, and the Clinton Square public park. The city is also home to the fifth-largest shopping mall in the country, Destiny USA, which has loads of shops, restaurants, and indoor entertainment options. If you fancy a day trip, the stunning glacial lakes at Green Lakes State Park and the picturesque village of Skaneateles are only about 15 and 30 minutes away by car or taxi. 

There is a lot to explore in Syracuse, so it’s worth having a reliable way to get around the city quickly and hassle-free. The fastest and easiest transportation method is a Syracuse taxi or private transfer. To ensure that your transfers are of professional quality and at a competitive price, we recommend booking in advance with a top-rated global company.

Syracuse taxi prices

Taxi services in Syracuse, NY, are available through private companies. As such, there are no standard government-set rates as in other cities, making it hard to offer a specific fare estimate for a ride. Although the average transfer from the airport to downtown Syracuse is estimated at around $30.21 (€28.71), rates vary among operators, so we recommend asking for a fare estimate before booking or getting in a cab. You can find cab ranks in very busy areas such as the airport and train stations, but generally, you will probably have to call for one. You can also book in advance with Welcome to secure a reliable and professional transfer at a competitive fixed rate.

We recommend enquiring about a company’s rates before making a reservation. You can also book in advance with a trusted and global provider to secure a guaranteed fixed rate for your transfer.
