Taxi and Limousine Service

Taxis

Getting to and from O'Hare International Airport by taxi is both easy and convenient.

Leaving O'Hare

There are Taxi Stands at the lower-level curb front (outside of baggage claim) at each terminal. Taxi service is available to the city of Chicago and suburban destinations. Please make sure to use the designated Taxi Stands to ensure you have a licensed driver. For your protection, do not accept rides from drivers outside the cab stand or on the departure level (second level) of the terminal roadways. All taxis should have a working meter to calculate the fare based on time and mileage.

           Fares are based on traffic conditions, but an average fare from O'Hare to downtown Chicago is $30-40.
           For current fare information, please check the City of Chicago taxi passenger information website
           For wheelchair accessible vehicles, please call: 1.855.WAV.1010

Shared ride service is available to those who wish to share a ride and pay a flat rate to certain destinations if multiple parties are available for the trip. Shared ride fares from O'Hare include:

  • Downtown ($24 per person)
  • McCormick Place ($24 per person)
  • Midway International Airport ($37 per person)

Going to O'Hare

If you a taking a taxi to O'Hare from the city of Chicago and are not located in an area where taxis are readily available, the list of taxi companies and phone numbers here may be useful to schedule a pick up.
For suburban pick up, contact your local cab company.

 

Limousines

Limousines are available for both city of Chicago and suburban destinations. 

Contact your company of choice near the ride boards to make reservations. You may also reference the listing of pre-arranged limousine services posted near the airport information booths across from Door C, located on the lower-level of each terminal.

Pre-Arranged Rides

If you have pre-arranged a pick up with a limousine company, you should call the service once you have claimed your luggage. They will provide you with a license plate number, a description of the car, and/or a door number where you can meet the driver. Liveries can only meet passengers at designated areas on the the lower level center lane (lane 2). Depending on airport traffic, it can take between 5 and 20 minutes for the vehicle to get to the designated pickup location.

Meeting Drivers in Baggage Claim

Some limousine services can arrange to have their drivers meet arriving passengers in the baggage claim area or in other pre-designated pick up locations within the baggage claim area. The driver can then assist with luggage and take the passenger directly to the vehicle. O'Hare provides designated livery parking directly across from each of the terminals. It is typically a 5 to 7 minute walk to the vehicle.​​
