Taxiway protocol

When there are 2 taxiways is there a protocol for one being for arrivals and the other for departures?

Some airports do have systems. I think most commonly the taxiway nearest the runway would be for arrivals.

I’m pretty sure it’s the opposite, but I may be wrong

I could very much be wrong too. I just figured it would make sense so aircraft can vacate onto the inner taxiway, but no idea really

Intuitively it makes sense to me for the taxiway closest to the runway to be for departures. I always fly solo so I can use whichever I want, but I would think there would be a protocol for this

It really depends on the airport layout. If you can give us a specific example, I’d be happy to give my opinion on how the configuration would be.

At LAX it’s the opposite

Thx 😁

Thanks. I was asking if there is a universal rule, but it sounds like maybe not.
