Taxis are conveniently located just outside the terminal building. The grey or white or orange taxis are standard and somewhat cheaper than the black "deluxe" taxis. The deluxe taxis are a little more comfortable and drivers sometimes speak English, but the standard ones are perfectly adequate for most trips. Both taxi services operate on a metered system, but the passenger will also be reponbible for the cost of highway tolls. The cost will vary depending on traffic conditions, but generally runs about 70,000 won for standard taxis and 90,000 won for black taxis.
