Daxing International Airport

Transportation to Beijing Daxing International Airport from the City Center

For transportation to Beijing Daxing International Airport from the city center, which is located 46 kilometers away, by the means of public transport such as buses, high-speed trains, subway and intercity trains, you can make use of car rental and taxi services. There are also transportation possibilities to the airport, which has a broad road transportation network, from intercity bus terminals, Tianjin Cruise Port and other airports.

Transportation to the airport by taxi

Because international driving licenses are not accepted in China, foreigners mostly travel by taxi. You can find air-conditioned and large vehicles in the center of Beijing 24/7 and easily arrive at the airport. Taxi fares in Beijing are very economical, but owing to the heavy traffic of the city, transportation times and fares may differ. Moreover, it is very difficult to find a taxi during peak hours (between 07:00-09:00 and 17:00-20:00). Do not forget that it is also difficult to find a taxi in busy areas such as the Forbidden City and Wangfujing Street.

If the weather is rainy or snowy, it will be more appropriate to use public transportation instead of taxi due to heavy traffic. If you need to catch an airplane and want to take a taxi, you can also book taxis in advance.

The starting fare of a taxi journey is $1.8 for the first 3 kilometers. If your taxi exceeds this distance, $0.32 is added to the fare per km, and $0.48 after the first 15 kilometers. The tolls are paid by the passengers, and there is an increase by 20% in the fare during the night shift (23:00 - 05:00). International credit cards are not accepted in taxis; for this reason, you can make your payments in cash or by Beijing Transportation Smart Card, Wechat, Alipay and UnionPay.

In Beijing, there are fake taxis that scam tourists and passengers or charge them with extra fares; therefore, official taxis have the distinctive "TAXI" sign and license plates always start with the letter "B". In official taxis with taximeters, the brand of the taxi company and the name of the driver must be clearly shown on the dashboard. Official taxis give a receipt at the end of the trip. If this receipt is written by hand, the taxi that you have taken is most probably a fake taxi. If the taxi is fake or its taximeter does not work, you have the legal right not to pay the fare.

Most of the taxi drivers in Beijing do not speak English, so you need to write the name of your hotel or destination in Chinese.
