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. In Terminal C, Yellow Cabs are available on the Arrival (lower) Level at Column 14. Taxicabs include standard 4-passenger vehicles, large capacity 7-passenger vans, and wheelchair access vans, and because all taxicabs are either powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or are certified Ultra Low-Emission Vehicles (ULEV), 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.
