No Hidden Fees for your Calgary Airport Taxi

Calgary is a cosmopolitan hub located in Alberta, USA. With its large skyscrapers, world-class shopping and dining and incredible nightlife, Calgary is incredibly modern. However, it’s still steeped in Western culture with its country music scene, summer Rodeo festival and famous Calgary Stampede. Getting from the airport to your hotel quickly and comfortably, so you can start to explore this amazing city is a must, that’s why we recommend taking a Calgary airport taxi for your transfer. 

From the moment your plane touches down at Calgary International Airport (YYC), your driver will be waiting for you just outside of the Terminal, holding a sign with your name on it. After a warm country greeting, your driver will help you carry your luggage to your pre-selected vehicle. If your flight is delayed, there’s no need to worry. All of our drivers receive live updates on your flight time, so they will always be there when you land. 

While you make your way into the heart of Calgary, your driver will share with you a few local tips and tricks to make the most out of your stay and will answer any questions you may have about the city. Let Welcome Pickups take care of your Calgary airport shuttle so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Directions for your Calgary Airport Cab

Calgary International Airport (YYC) is the fourth-busiest airport in Canada and the busiest one in Alberta, as it sees around 18 million passengers pass through its doors each year. The airport is located 19 km from downtown Calgary, so taking a Calgary airport cab shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes. 

After exiting the airport compound, your driver will turn left onto 96 Ave NE/Airport Trl NE/W, before merging onto Deerfoot Trail, which heads toward Trans Canada Hwy. This road will then merge into Deerfoot Trail NE, which you will follow until you take exit 256 for Memorial Dr. You will follow Memorial Dr for around 2 km and then take the 4th Ave S ramp to the City Centre. Finally, your driver will take a left onto Macleod Trail and another left once you reach the 1st cross street, which will lead you into the heart of downtown Calgary.
