It's a flat rate $26 as I recall, plus tip and luggage. About a 15 - 20 minute trip.

Laura,

Budget $30 with tip. It is "flat rate" pricing and, as others have said, it's around $25.

Make sure you pick up your cab at the taxi stand and do not hail one yourself. There are gypsy cabs that will pick you up and once you are in the car and moving they try to charge you an exorbitant amount. This isn't urban myth, it happened to Anne Campbell.

Take care,
Mike

Last time it cost about $25.00 and no charge for the baggage,
I guess it depends on the driver.

It does not depend on the driver. It is a flat rate and it is $25. Some people will add a tip to make it a little more.

If you get your cab at the taxi stand and the driver tries to charge you more don't pay it. Also: Don't get in the cab until you know the price.

Take care,
Mike
