Any changes to the posted rates and charges must be submitted to the City of Joliet – Business Services a minimum of thirty (30) days before the change can occur. In addition the fares and rates must be visibly posted and if requested a receipt must be provided.

If you have any questions regarding the posted fares and rates you should contact the applicable Taxi Cab Company. If you believe the posted rates and fares are not being followed please contact Business Services at 815.724.3905.

Below is an alphabetical list of the taxi cab companies licensed by the City of Joliet. The City of Joliet does not recommend or endorse any taxi cab company. If a company states that they have a fuel surcharge, the City of Joliet references fuelgaugereport.com and uses the “average” grade of fuel for the State of Illinois.
