Quick access to taxi locations and info.

On-demand taxi service is provided by the Sacramento Independent Taxi Owners Association (SITOA) by contract. This contract ensures the availability of cars and the quality of equipment and service provided. While several companies are members of the association, all cars are white, carry airport branding and are required to maintain levels of customer service and cleanliness.

Other taxi companies with an airport permit may drop off passengers at any time and pick up passengers with an advance reservation, except for Uber, Lyft, and other Transportation Network Companies (TNCs). The airport is in negotiations with Uber and Lyft to allow them to operate at Sacramento International Airport. Until an agreement has been reached, however, TNCs are not allowed to pick up or drop off passengers. A small number of TNC drivers received permits to operate last year, and for the time being, those drivers may do business at the airport.

All taxis are located in the ground transportation area adjacent to the baggage claim area.
