Taxi and Limousine Service


Taxis 

Getting to and from Midway International Airport by taxi is both easy and convenient.
 

Leaving Midway

Taxi stands are located on the lower level curbfront of the terminals, and taxis are available on a first come, first serve basis. To ensure you have a licensed taxi driver, please be sure to use the taxi stands. For your protection, do not accept rides from drivers outside the cab stand or in the departure area of the terminal roadways. All taxis should have a working meter to calculate the fare based on time and mileage.

           For current fare information, please check the City of Chicago taxi passenger information website.

Going to Midway

If you are taking a taxi to Midway 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 near the bottom of this page 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 suburb destinations. Contact your company of choice to make reservations. You may also reference the list of pre-arranged limousine services provided at the Ground Transportation Information Booth located on the baggage claim level near carousel #4.

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.
Depending on airport traffic it can take between 3 to 10 minutes for your vehicle to get to your 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. Midway provides convenient livery parking, and it typically requires a 5 to 7 minute walk to the vehicle.
