Best fares and promo tickets

Transportation from Syamsudin Noor International Airport to Banjarmasin City Center

Travelers arriving at Syamsudin Noor International Airport and seeking transportation to downtown Banjarmasin have several options available, including:

1. Airport taxi

Several taxi companies operate out of Syamsudin Noor International Airport, including Banua Taxi, Taxi Borneo, Kojotas Taxi and Banjar Arya Taxi. The taxis are not typically equipped with meters, so you will need to negotiate a fair price to your destination before entering the taxi. A reasonable taxi fare from the airport to the city center ranges from 125,000 Rp to 150,000 Rp. Avoid taxi drivers offering unusually high prices to tourists and those who do not speak the local language.

2. City transport

In addition to the available taxis, travelers can take Banjarmasin’s public transportation option known as the yellow cab. The yellow cabs do not look like traditional yellow taxis, because they are minibuses painted yellow. These vehicles can be located outside of the airport. You’ll need to walk roughly 400 meters away from the airport toward the airport roundabout. The yellow cab will take you from the roundabout to Terminal Pal 6. From Terminal Pal 6, you’ll take another yellow cab to the Banjarmasin city center. The fare for taking a yellow cab from the airport to the city center is typically 6,000 Rp per person. The destination is not always printed on the windshield of the minibus, so you’ll want to ask a Banjarmasin local or the bus driver to confirm that the yellow cab you’re boarding is traveling to the city center. Airport personnel can also help you locate the correct yellow cab to your destination.
