Airport Shared-Ride Rates

Shuttle rates are determined by City of Madison approved zones from the airport. In order to determine your share ride rate, find your zone on the map and look up on the chart below.


Shuttle Rate and Peak Periods
When the demand for taxis exceeds supply, the City of Madison will declare a "Peak Period" during which time direct-service metered taxis may provide shared-ride service provided all parties agree to share the ride. This occurs every night at 10 p.m. until the airport closes and then on special dates (around Thanksgiving, Spring Break and other times of heavy travel). The taxi companies charge a predetermined flat rate for the ride.
While we hope that during peak periods, people share with their neighbors to ease the burden for everyone, you always have the right to ride direct and by yourself in a metered taxi. Drivers may not refuse service because you do not want to share.
Our Pricing Philosophy
At Union Cab, we believe that if you aren't getting direct metered service, your shouldn't have to pay direct metered prices (or more). We price our service to give you a discount off of our meter rates. Essentially, you pay for shared ride service. When there is more than one person in your party, you don't pay more.
