Helpful FAQs to answer your questions

Can we reserve a taxi from Ute Cab?

Yes, but please remember to allow some leeway in regards to your reservation time. Taxi services are often pressed by demands and may require a few additional minutes to meet your request.


Are Salt Lake City taxis allowed to pick people up who simply hail the cab from the street?

It is considered acceptable to "hail" or "flag" a metered taxi in Salt Lake City. However, if the taxi is already

en route to pick up another customer, they may not be available for your hail or flag at that time.


Is it possible to ask a driver to stop and wait if I need to run into an office building or store for something?

Absolutely. You are allowed to make stops whenever necessary. However, the driver will require payment to ensure that you do return or that you have paid for your trip and waiting time, in case you do not return.


Is it really possible to see bison in Utah?

Yes. Anyone can take a trip to Antelope Island, also accessible by cab, on the Great Salt Lake and see living proof that buffalo still roam freely throughout the area.


Is it possible to drive to the Rocky Mountains directly from Salt Lake City?

Yes. The Wasatch Front area of the Rocky Mountains Range is only 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City and is also easy to reach by taxi. As a result, there is the potential to enjoy some fantastic skiing nearby.
