Covid Question

Can I Still Go To Canada During Covid?

Yes! You can use our taxi crossing the Canadian border to travel to Canada. Before traveling internationally, make sure you have all of your COVID-19 vaccines up to date. Getting vaccinated is still the most effective way to protect yourself from serious disease and slow the spread of COVID-19.

New Update About Covid And Entering To Canada

The federal COVID-19 border restrictions have been extended until at least June 30, according to Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Foreign tourists will continue to be required to show documentation of being completely vaccinated by the federal authorities. Unvaccinated Canadian nationals and permanent residents must still produce proof of a molecular COVID-19 test before to entering Canada, as well as undergo a 14-day quarantine period.

Use ArriveCAN To Enter Canada

Prior to admission, all visitors to Canada, regardless of citizenship, must continue to submit their health information using the ArriveCAN app. The announcement comes a day after a Conservative Party resolution in the House of Commons was defeated, calling on the federal government to eliminate all remaining COVID-19 travel restrictions.

In ArriveCAN You Must Identify:

how you'll enter Canada (via air, land, or sea, for example) and where you'll enter Canada (port of entry) Select any accessible option if your specific travel details do not appear in the app. You will be able to proceed to the following step, finish your submission, and enter Canada as a result of this. OUR PORT OF ENTRY IS RAINBOW BRIDGE.

Coming Back To The USA, Do You I Need A Test?

To enter the United States by air, land, or sea, fully vaccinated travelers do not need to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result.

Do U.S. Citizens Or Lawful Permanent Residents Need Proof Of Vaccination To Return To The United States Via Land POEs And Ferry Terminals?

No, vaccinations are not required for US citizens, US nationals, or Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs). Visitors who exhibit signs or symptoms of illness will be referred to the CDC for further medical evaluation.

Is Pre- Or At-Arrival COVID Testing Required To Enter The United States Via Land POEs Or Ferry Terminals?

No, there is no requirement for COVID testing to enter the United States through land POE or ferry terminals. In this regard, the requirement for entering by land POE or ferry terminal differs from that for arriving by air, where a negative test result is required prior to departure.

Can I Cancel My Taxi Booking?

Yes. You have the option to cancel your reservation for free up to 24 hours before your scheduled pick-up time. Some of our partners have shorter free cancellation periods. More information can be found on your booking confirmation.

Canada Border Questions

Yes! As long as you have the proper papers, such as a passport, you can use our taxi to cross the Canadian border safely and smoothly.

So, depending on your scenario, if you are an American citizen or have a Green Card, and if you use our TAXI, the answer is NO, you do not require a visa. If you are not an American citizen and do not have a Green Card, you may need a Visa.

This is the first weekend in which passengers who have been vaccinated can enter Canada without submitting documentation of a negative COVID-19 test.

As a licenced Airport Taxi Company in Buffalo NY we provide safe and private taxi transportation to and from anywhere in Canada. All of our Taxis are thoroughly disinfected, drivers are full masked and are screened before and after every jobs to ensure the safety of our passengers but NON of the drivers are vaccinated yet.

Since our Airport Taxi Service is a private taxi provider. Once you have booked your taxi, it is all yours. We are NOT sharing it with other customers. You have the option to reserve a taxi VAN which has more space in the back with the same price.

NO - Our drivers do NOT need covid screening or COVID TEST at the Canadian border. The custom officer only ask the customer the necessary vaccination documentation and a negative COVID-19 molecular test result taken in the United States within 72 hours of pre-arrival. However, we will wait until you finalize your screening or paper work without additional charge at the border (sometimes might take about 45 minutes. 

We will only charge you $95 to get to Niagara Falls, Canada. NO OTHER SURPRISE FEES and just $85 for the USA side.

You are unable to do so. For several legal reasons, Uber does not yet enable drivers to cross the border.

The taxi ride from Buffalo to Niagara Falls takes about 1 hour or more depending on your background situation and the traffic at the Canadian border and covers a distance of about 41 kilometers.


Despite the high traffic at the checkpoint, which can take more than an hour, the driver costs only $85 for NIAGARA FALLS American side and $95 for NIAGARA FALLS CANADIAN SIDE to any FallsViews hotels, and $330 from Buffalo Airport to Toronto Downtown. When you use the BUF Buffalo Taxi Service, you will receive this perk. We are the only firm that provides cheap FLAT RATES. Again, the American side is $85, while Canada's Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotels are $95 US dollars. 

NO, the 20% discount only applies to METER RATES; the 20% discount does not apply to FLAT RATE PRICE. It is not possible to mix two discounts. WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IN ADVANCE IF THE CHARGE WILL BE DIFFERENT ON THE EVE AND HOLIDAYS, OR DURING BAD WEATHER. So you have two options for saving money: take advantage of the substantial discounted FLAT RATE WITH ALL DISCOUNTS APPLIED or go with the METERED PRICE AND TAKE 20% OFF THE FINAL METER PRICE.

The advantage of taking a METERED TAXI is that you can see the price right in front of you, but the disadvantage is that it will cost you at every stop or traffic jam on the highway, as well as on the bridge or at the SECURITY CHECK POINT at the Canadian border.

For example, if you are stopped by a Security Officer at the CHECK POINT, the METER will continue to operate and rack up 0.50 cents each minute. So, if you stop there for an hour, it will cost you 0.50 cents a minute multiplied by 60 minutes equals $30. 

On a typical day, the average wait time is 30 minutes, depending on your situation and the automobile in front of you in line. To avoid this, we recommend that you use our FLAT RATE. (85$ FLAT FOR AMERICAN NIAGARA FALLS AND 95$ FLAT FOR CANADIAN SIDE NIAGARA FALLS FALLS VIEWS.

All fares are inclusive, with the exception of TIPS/GRATITUDE, which are optional. You can pay the driver if you like him/her, but everything else is included.

The prices displayed are ALWAYS PER CAR (not per person). Your fare you see or told over the phone is the amount you pay to your driver.

You have the option of booking a VAN or a CAR for the same price, and ALL PRICES ARE PER CAR.
