Salt Lake City Cab Prices

Unlike most other major cities in the United States, you won’t be charged using a taximeter when taking a taxi in Salt Lake City. The cost of your Salt Lake City taxi will be determined by your driver, based on the time of day, the number of passengers and the distance you’re travelling. Having said this, there are maximum fares that have been put in place by the SLC Council, that show the maximum fare a taxi driver is allowed to charge, based on zones. For example, the maximum fare a Salt Lake City cab driver can charge from the airport to Zone 1 (within 500 East downtown) is $27 (€27.60) and to Zone 2 (outside 500 East) is $32 (€32.70). 

There’s usually an average charge of $20 (€20.50) for keeping your driver waiting for an hour, and additional charges for every passenger over the first two.
