Getting to and from O'Hare International Airport by taxi is both easy and convenient.
There are Taxi Stands at the lower level curb front (outside of Baggage Claim) at each terminal. Taxi service is available to 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.
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:
Going to O'Hare
If you are taking a taxi to O'Hare from Chicago and are not located in an area where taxis are readily available, the list of taxi companies and phone numbers below may be useful to schedule a pick up.
For suburban pick up, contact your local cab company.
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 list of pre-arranged limousine services posted near the airport information booths across from Door C, located on the lower level of each terminal.
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.
A TNP company provides prearranged transportation services for compensation through an Internet-enabled application or digital platform to connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire.
Loading zones for TNP services are at the following locations:
Uber Black and Uber Taxi will pick up on the Lower Level.
