TERMINAL SHUTTLE BUS
Inter-Terminal Shuttle between Terminal’s 2 and 3 runs every 20 minutes, from out in front of each terminal. The shuttle is free.
Taxis are not permited to park at any of the airport terminals. HOWEVER, there is a taxi stand outside the front main entrance/exit where you get the terminal shuttle bus and there are taxi signs inside the terminals. These are not for taxi “cars” but transfer services [vans or small buses].
If you are standing in front of the International Terminal you may be asked if you need a ride. This may be an airport employee/taxi guy or simply somebody with a car. Costs are relatively the same as a legal taxi.
Not shown on the map above but on the other side of the International Terminal parking lot is where the car rental agencies are. [Car agency rental booths are located inside the terminals.]
