    Can't say for sure, but it's a good 25-40 minute drive from the airport depending on traffic. I'd be prepared to spend at least $25 each way...maybe more. Make sure you arrange to have a cab pick you up from the school otherwise you'll be waiting. Not too many cabs in Mesa. You can also check Supershuttle. It's a van service, usually cheaper than a taxi.

    Here are the websites in their packet....

    www.airporttransportation-az.com
    www.supershuttle.net

    I rented a car but maybe someone else can give you more precise cab details.

    Depending on how old you are you can rent a car for $23.00 a day. That's what I'll be doing. I think you have to be at least 24 though. Good luck

    You may have to add taxes and airport fees to that $23 which quickly becomes $40-$50 per day...unless thatalready includes taxes. If you're under 25 then most companies charge an additional $25 per day!

    Supershuttle might be the most cost effective if you're under 25.

    I'm 26 and the price came to something like $26.00, but that was for a mid-size. THe compact was like $23.00 a day. Unless I'm totally missing something that's what the price was. My interview is on December 7th. Let me know if I can help.

    You are right! Just checked Orbitz. $23 includes tax! That's cheaper than a cab and much more convenient.
