Taxi Service

Taxicabs are an important service or backup for people who carpool, use public transportation, or simply need to get to the airport. Because fares differ between areas, always check the fare rates with cab companies to be sure you understand what the costs can be and what form of payment is accepted.

Information about paratransit and accessible taxicabs for seniors and persons with disabilities is available here. TDD for hearing impaired persons in Virginia is available through Virginia Relay.  Dial 711 to initiate a Virginia Relay call.
