Ground Transportation

The Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County (MAA) has a program in place for taxi cab and ground shuttle operations by providing a variety of licensed providers. 
It should be noted that several of these partners providers require a reservation particularly in the evening hours. A traveler may contact the company of their choice, on their own, but that company may only pick up or drop off that reserved traveler and may not solicit for other rides on airport property.
