Calling a cab

Taxi Service is also available in the Greater Pittsburgh area. The area's two largest cab companies are Yellow Cab (412-665-8100) and People's Cab (412-681-3131). As a warning for visitors from other cities, don't expect to be able to hail a cab anytime you want. Cabs generally require a phone call to arrange for a pickup, or ask a Hilton Doorman to call you one. Cabs are also available at the Pittsburgh International Airport.

Typical Fare: $1.80 drop charge/$1.40 per mile

A cab ride from Pittsburgh International Airport to downtown is about $30.

Fares are subject to change without notice.
