Taxi fare from greyhound station to the Airport

We are planning to fly out of Buffalo in late December and we are considering taking the bus from Toronto . Given how iffy the weather can be at that time of year , we are planning to go down a day ahead. Does anyone know the approximate cab fare from the bus station to the airport?

We are usually dropped off by one of our kids at the airport but that option is not available to us this year , and the Niagara Airbus is ridiculously expensive! ( $ 67.00 one way !)

Is there a better alternative?

I don't know about cab fare, but there's an express metro bus that runs from the bus station to the airport several times a day. That would definitely be an inexpensive alternative! Here's a link to the schedule and a map:

Here's more info from the NFTA website:

Metro is the best way to get to and from the airport

Metro Bus service from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is quick, inexpensive and easy to use. Routes actively serve downtown Buffalo and Niagara Falls, offering connections to points throughout the region.

Airport-Downtown Express

This shuttle runs non-stop service between the airport and Buffalo's central business district, including the Metro Bus station downtown (Metropolitan Transportation Center.) One-way fare (in most cases) is $2.05. Service runs weekdays, approximately every 30 minutes, during peak drive time. Consult the schedule - Route 204

The airport is 10 miles from the bus station. A typical taxi costs $3.00/mile, plus $2.30 up-front, plus a 10-15% tip. That would be around $36-38 USD total.
