Taxis and the Triangle Expressway
Some destinations near RDU can be reached quickly using the Triangle Expressway, North Carolina’s first modern toll road. If your destination is easily accessible via the Triangle Expressway, RDU taxi drivers will:

  • Advise you of the option to use the toll route before leaving the airport and that there is also a non-toll option to your destination.
