* Due to state licensing restrictions, one side of each taxi ride must be based in California (Nevada to Nevada trips are not available at this time)

Pickup location at RNO:
  • You will meet the taxi in the Taxi/Shuttle Bus Ground Transportation area of the Reno Airport (not curbside).
  • The taxi pickup area is located adjacent to the baggage claim area at RNO and there are signs throughout the airport leading to Ground Transportation and to the Taxi Standing area.
  • You will pass through the doors at the end of the baggage claim area (just past the furthest luggage carousel).
  • Once you are at the Ground Transportation area after exiting the baggage claim, walk to the right hand side of the U-shaped lot and look for our clearly marked Truckee River Taxi vehicle.
  • The yellow and white taxis directly outside the baggage terminal are NOT Truckee River Taxi, but for local Reno taxi rides.
  • Our pickup location is directly in front of these cabs on the right hand side of the lot.
RNO Rate/ Payment Info:
  • Rates quoted are for ONE WAY trips and DO NOT include gratuity
  • For your convenience, 15% gratuity will be automatically included on all PREPAID TRANSFERS.
  • Rates are valid for up to 3 passengers per vehicle with standard amount of luggage (one checked and one carry-on per passenger).
  • $10 per person additional for 4-5 passengers.
  • Please call for rates for 5+ passengers.
  • NOTE about acceptance of INTERNATIONAL CREDIT CARDS: Airport transfers booked by telephone must have a credit card with a US zip code. Reservations for International credit cards must be prepaid and are subject to an additional $5 processing fee and must be paid thru invoicing (instructions will be provided by TRT).
RNO Transfer Terms and Conditions Including CANCELLATIONS AND DELAYS:
  • It is the responsibility of the booking party to inform TRT of changes to travel plans including, but not limited to, flight delays, flight cancellations, changes in pickup or drop off locations, changes to numbers of passengers, and changes to luggage space and vehicle size requirements.
  • Notification of pickup delays should be received and acknowledged by TRT at least 2 hours prior to the scheduled pickup time to avoid any additional fees for wait time at RNO. For last minute delays that may occur within 2 hours of you scheduled arrival, please call us at 530-386-3935 as soon as possible so we can maintain contact with you and avoid excess wait time at the airport. While we do check flight arrivals prior to dispatching drivers for pickups, please contact us if your plans change as soon as you are able. Our main dispatch line does NOT receive text messages, however, when you call us while you are travelling please let us know is texting is a better method of contact for you and we will provide you with our driver’s cell phone number for text-communication.
  • TRT drivers will wait at RNO for up to 20 minutes after the scheduled time of pickup and it is at the company’s discretion to continue to wait (depending on whether customer has made contact to advise of travel changes) and whether additional fees/charges may apply.
  • TRT drivers will be on time for the original scheduled pickup time. If your flight arrives earlier than scheduled please call 530-386-3935 as soon as you arrive to contact your driver.
  • Rates charged are for direct travel between scheduled locations. Additional stops are subject to scheduling availability. Additional fees, including additional mileage rates and wait time charges, may be applied. Please make arrangements in advance of your scheduled pickup time if you know you will need to make additional stops so we are able to schedule enough time for your transportation.
  • Please inform TRT of additional luggage requirements (skis, dog crates, more than 1 large/1 overhead bag per passenger, etc.) prior to scheduled pickup so an appropriately sized vehicle can be arranged for your needs. Our most commonly scheduled vehicle for RNO transfers is the Subaru Outback, so please let us know if you have special requests or need for your travel.

All cancellations must be emailed to

  • 48+ hours to scheduled pickup time: 50% cancellation fee of quoted rate charged.
  • 48 hours to 2 hours prior to scheduled pickup time: 100% cancellation fee of quoted rate charged.
  • Within 2 hours of scheduled pickup time (and for no-show reservations): 100% cancellation fee of quoted rate charged plus 15%.

For reservations by telephone when a card is provided at time of booking instead of prepayment made by invoice: the card you provided will be charged according to the timetable above in the event of a cancellation. By providing your card at the time of booking the reservation, you are agreeing to allow Truckee River Taxi to charge the card in the event of a cancellation or for additional fees, as listed above, for additional mileage, wait times, unscheduled travel fees or changes to the vehicle type/size requirements or number of passengers after initial booking.

TOP 5 REASONS to book your airport transfer in advance:

1. SAVE $$$

Our Reno to Tahoe City rate is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS than the yellow and white Reno based cabs stationed at the airport – an average of 30% less expensive, in fact. Whereas cab rates at major airports (like those in NYC) are regulated, RNO airport cabs do not have the same regulation practices and cab companies are free to charge whatever rates they choose – we chose to charge you less!


When you book with Truckee River Taxi, you can be confident that your money will stay in the Tahoe local economy. PLEASE HELP KEEP OUR TAHOE-LOCAL COMPANIES ALIVE by calling us for your Tahoe transportation.

3. EASY and FAST

It takes just one 5 minute phone call to set up your airport pickup. All RNO airport pickups must be booked in advance - call us at least 90 minutes before your landing time to book (further in advance is recommended to guarantee availability).


All of our drivers live and play in Tahoe, so if you have questions about what's been going on in Tahoe, we can answer them.


Once we drop you off at your house or hotel, we hope to see you again in the area. From getting you to the ski resorts to picking you up after a night on the town, we are here to make sure you get everywhere you need to go while you are visiting.
