How much is a Buffalo Airport taxi?

Taxis in Buffalo, NY, operate as independent cab companies and do not use taximeters, so it is hard to calculate precisely how much a trip will be. A rough price estimate for a Buffalo Airport taxi to Downtown Buffalo is $37 (€35.60). For a more precise cost, check with the company you want to book with beforehand, as rates can differ greatly. Keep in mind that the fare also depends on the size of the vehicle you choose. If you hire a minivan to serve as your private Niagara airport shuttle, the cost will be higher than that of a regular cab. We recommend booking your transfer in advance to secure a guaranteed fixed fare, pre-pay for your trip and avoid any associated hidden fees.
