Sixteen taxicab companies service the Las Vegas valley. When you enter a taxicab, the driver will start the taximeter (referred to as the “drop”) and an initial charge of $3.45 will register. If a taxi ride originates at McCarran International Airport, an additional airport surcharge of $2 per trip is added to the taximeter.

After the initial “drop”, the taximeter will assess a fare of $2.68 per mile ($.21 for each 1/13th of a mile traveled). If the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving less than 8-12 MPH, the taximeter will assess a charge of $.27 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. Once the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving at a speed greater than 8-12 MPH the fare calculates on the actual distance traveled.

Drop for initial activation of taximeter  $3.45

Each additional 1/13th mile ($2.68 per mile) $.21

Waiting time per hour $32.40

McCarran Airport fee per pick-up $2
