Things you should know about Las Vegas Taxi Fares

The base fare is $2.88 per mile.

There is an initial charge of $3.50 when the meter starts to run.

Each additional 1/12th mile ($2.88 per mile) is $.24

If you are starting your trip from the airport, there is an additional charge of $2.00 McCarran Airport Fee.

If the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving less than 8-12 MPH, the taximeter will assess a charge of $.27 (twenty-seven cents) every 30 seconds ($32.40 per hour waiting time). That is why the taximeter continues to accumulate charges even when the taxicab is not moving.

Nevada law requires Las Vegas taxicabs to have air conditioning and heat.

There are Sixteen taxicab companies servicing the Las Vegas valley.

There is a 5 person maximum and the fare is the same no matter how many passengers are traveling.

Be sure you have enough cash for the fare because most Las Vegas taxi drivers will not accept credit cards. The few that will accept a credit card will charge passengers a $3.00 fee over and above the meter charge.

The use of the I-215 tunnel from McCarran airport is NEVER the shortest route to ANY Las Vegas Strip hotel and this route will result in higher fare.

You should also know that Las Vegas taxicab drivers must obey the passenger's directions as it relates to route taken. Do your homework, use the list below or Google the shortest route to your hotel before getting to Las Vegas.

Money Saving Tip: Here is a way to save on taxi fare. If you're adventurous (and use good judgment on this one), while waiting for bags at baggage claim or standing in the long taxi lines, ask if anyone nearby is heading to the same destination, then split the fare. Cabs charge the same whether there's one rider or five.
Taxi service at McCarran International Airport is available on the east side of baggage claim, outside exits 1-4. Airport personnel are available on the curb to assist passengers.
