Taxi Service

John Wayne Airport Yellow Cab offers convenient taxicab service to travelers from the Ground Transportation Center (GTC) on the Arrival (lower) Level between Terminals A and B. Passengers arriving in Terminal C can call Yellow Cab from the Taxi Phone in Terminal C (near Baggage Carousel 5), for pickup at Column 14 on the Arrival (lower) Level. Taxicabs include standard 4-passenger vehicles, large capacity 7-passenger vans, and wheelchair access vans, and because Compressed Natural Gas powers the cabs, you’ll be riding in some of the greenest yellow vehicles in Orange County! Look for the taxi coordinators who can assist you and get you on your way.
