Taxi companies in Anchorage are lightly regulated, and the rates are set by local companies with no Maximum. However you can expect to pay about $2.00 for setting foot in a cab, $2.50 per mile and $38.00 per hour of waiting time (Credit: Alaska Yellow Dispatch).
Typical airport trips will cost you $15 to $30: $20 to downtown (where the Sheraton and Hilton hotels are located), $25 to the University of Alaska.
Anchorage does not have many taxicabs cruising up & down the streets, hailing cab might leave you waiting for a long time. A better strategy is to get the Taxi Mojo on your iPhone or Android to order a cab when you're on the go.
