Please Book Airport and Out of Town Requests Over the Phone

United Taxi requests our Out of Town and Airport Request customers to book your taxi ahead over the phone by calling United Taxi at 519-888-9999. Please call and ask for Dispatch to book your ride. By booking ahead the dispatcher will give your call a special code so that dispatch becomes aware of your call about a half hour in advance of the time and date you requested which is helpful for a timely dispatch in busy times or inclement weather.

If you need to go immediately, just order a taxi as usual by calling or using the app. If you use the app please put a note in the ‘Info for Driver” section that you are going to the airport. Please be advised that if you use the app and it matches you with a driver that cannot go out of town for personal reasons such as end of shift or needs to be to an appointment etc, you may see the call convert back to awaiting dispatch and then assigned to another car.

The app is great for tracking your taxi, we just wanted to let you know this may happen for a longer trip that is out of town.


$20 Surcharge for Accessible Van Requests for Extra Luggage Information.

This surcharge does not apply if you are in need of an Accessible Van for regular Mobility Chair Use.

*** If you require an Accessible Van because you have too much luggage for a Sedan Taxi, there will be a $20 Surcharge. Our Accessible Van’s priority are customers that need accessible service and if van goes out of town for other reasons it limits our ability to keep up with Accessible service and we need to have additional help come out. This surcharge also applies to airport pickups.

The fees for requesting an Accessible Van for extra luggage make the price to the airport 109.99 and the price for a return pickup is $140.
If you require an Accessible Van for a Wheelchair Service to or from the airport the price is the same as a car.

Thank you for understanding.
