Our Company

Superior Service Since 1939.

Long before the opening of Orlando International Airport, Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios® Florida, SeaWorld® Orlando and other greater Orlando attractions, City Cab of Orlando, which later became Mears Transportation, began its Taxi Service operation in 1939.

As Orlando evolved into a major vacation, tourist, business and convention destination, we evolved our business to fulfill the needs of the millions of travelers visiting Orlando and Central Florida each year. We expanded our service offerings to luxury transportation, and charter bus service for large group transportation in the 1980s. In 1983, Mears Shuttle became the Orlando International Airport shuttle service provider.

Our company grew to ground transportation dominance through our founder Paul Mears Sr.’s vision and focus on exceeding customer expectations. Our relentless focus on Customer Service, Safety and Innovation propelled the company into its eighth decade of private passenger ground transportation in Central Florida.


To support Central Florida’s growing ground transportation needs, our extensive fleet consists of over 500 taxi cabs, 250 luxury vehicles, including luxury sedans, SUVs, vans, executive vans and limousines, 250 motor coaches and 45 shuttle vans.

We safely transport millions of guests each year.

Trusted by Millions of Passengers Each Year


“Tremendous service. Plane was 45 mins early and as soon as my phone was off airplane mode there was a text that the driver was ready at the bottom of the stairs. I asked how he got there so early and was told they track the flights. Car was very comfortable. Had cold water. A++ service. I spent extra for the private car. Best money I've spent in a while.”

“Drivers were extremely friendly and very helpful. Cars were clean and well maintained. Enjoyed not having to deal with the Florida traffic and just be able to enjoy vacation. Grandkids were excited to see car seats ready and waiting for them plus a movie playing on the DVD player. Can't say enough good things about our experience with Mears Transportation, loved every aspect of it.”

“We have never taken Mears Coach transportation before this, but after this occasion we will be referring our friends and family to take Mears whenever charter service is needed. As long as you have drivers like Ron on board, your customers are in very good hands! Please extend our thanks to Mr. Zupcic.”

“Olga did an excellent job helping and assisting my grandmother with her scooter. She was excellent with her communication and was very courteous towards me and my family. She made us feel very welcomed; when I ride with Mears again, I would love to have her as my driver. Great job, Mears, and excellent job, Olga Velez.”

“I wanted to pass along that we had the pleasure of using Mears Taxi! We needed a taxi, we were driven by Hassan and he was a very good representative of Mears Taxi. I know people are always quick to complain so I like to take the opportunity when someone’s service is GREAT that it is also acknowledged!”

“Jason was by far the best cab experience we’ve ever had! Polite, pleasant and personable! Made our drive home from a long travel day the perfect ending! Keep him driving for a long, long time!”

"The ride to Amtrak was the best and a great way to end our vacation. The driver listened to our story and made sure that our last impression of Mears was his smiling, cordial, ‘Thank you for your business’ comment. Kudos to Eli Lugo and kudos to you for hiring a great representative of Mears!”

“We wanted to let you know that Mark is far more than a shuttle driver. He made our experience one of the best ever. Your company has provided excellent service each time and now we’ll only use you as a service each time we come in.”
