Mexico City International Airport Transportation

By Taxi
Use ONLY official taxis, as new-arrivals are prey to those posing as taxi-drivers. Do not enter an unmarked or independent cab, and specially avoid Volkswagen ‘bug’ cabs.

Official taxis are located outside the baggage claim area, at the end of Lounges A and E. They are positioned beside the arrival gates in booths marked ‘Taxi/Transportacion Terrestre’. Staff wear bright-yellow jackets emblazoned with ‘Taxi Autorizado’. The cabs themselves are yellow with a white taxi light on the roof, and an airport symbol painted on the doors. Tickets can be bought at the taxi counters inside the terminal, and you should advise staff of your destination. Fees for transportation are clearly displayed and are classified by geographical zones.

By Car

To reach the airport by car from Mexico City (downtown), take Paseo de la Reforma East, then turn right to Av Rio Consulado East, then turn right to Circuito Interior Highway East.

By Rail

A metro station is located near the baggage claim, but is only recommended if travelling lightly. The Terminal Area station is marked by an M symbol, and is located on Metro Line 5. Trains run every 10 minutes, until 1 am. Paguro recommends that you visit the metro for the first time on a weekend, and not at your first arrival into Mexico City.

By Bus

Buses to various destinations are available and depart from outside the Domestic Terminal near lounge D. Pullman de Morelos connects Cuernavaca frequently, between 6:30am-11:00pm. Other destinations include Pachuca, Queretaro, San Miguel de Allende, Leon and several others. Some hotels provide a shuttle service to the city; enquire when booking your hotel.


Both short and long-term parking are available close to all airport lounges including a multi-level parking lot.
