When taking a taxi from Orlando International Airport (OIA) you can get an estimate of how much your trip will cost before you get in the cab from the supervisor at the taxi stand in front of the airport. Of course individual fares will vary, as will those to the hotels, but your taxi fare should be in the neighborhood of the estimate given at the airport. There are so many taxi companies servicing the airport, there is no need to list them here, just go to the taxi stand.
The following are some of the bus and limo companies that travel from and to Orlando International Airport.
We now only list services with a website or an e-mail address. The list above of limousine and bus companies is not comprehensive. We don't recommend any of them and have no affiliations with them.
Amtrak - 1(800)872-7245 or 1(800)USA-RAIL - America's only national passenger rail service has stations in Orlando, Kissimmee and Winter Park. With increasingly cancelled flights and delays at the airports and congested highways, this has become a more attractive option.
The lists above are by no means comprehensive as there are numerous other companies (which we haven't heard about yet). Enjoy your trip!
