Newark Liberty International Airport has state-approved taxi services available exclusively at the Port Authority Welcome Center of each terminal arrivals area. It is illegal to use any other taxi service at the airport, including all solicitors, as many of them are not legally approved.
Uniformed staff members provide ground transportation information at each Port Authority Welcome Center. As of 2015, taxis charge an additional $5.00 during peak hours for service to New York state, not including Staten Island. Fare quotes within the State of New Jersey must adhere to the rate schedule of fares and do not include round trip tolls. Local taxi commissions charge $5.50 for all credit card transactions, as well as a fee for all baggage over 24 inches. Seniors who show identification qualify for a 10 percent discount.
