Getting Around New Orleans
 

Cabs and Taxis

New Orleans Cabs and Taxis

Big on atmosphere and ambiance, New Orleans is actually a geographically small town, which makes most journeys by cab very affordable. A cross-town ride from your French Quarter/downtown hotel to an uptown jazz club or neighborhood restaurant is typically under $20, and a safe, fast way to get from point A to point B if you're unsure of streetcar or bus stop locations along the way. You'll find taxis indispensable when trekking out to such favorite local spots as Mid-City Lanes Rock N' Bowl or Vaughan's in the Bywater District.

A cab ride costs $33.00 from the airport to the Central Business District (CBD) for one person and $14.00 (per passenger) for three or more passengers. Pick-up is on the lower level, outside the baggage claim area. There may be an additional charge for extra baggage.

Below are cab companies currently servicing the New Orleans area. While you can often find a cab stand near a major hotel, be sure to call ahead during peak visitor seasons like Jazzfest and Mardi Gras.
