  1. Taxi

    A taxicab, also known as a taxi or a cab, is a type of vehicle for hire with a driver, used by a single passenger or small group of passengers often for a non-shared ride. A taxicab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. In modes of public transport, the pick-up and drop-off locations are determined by the service provider, not by the passenger, although demand responsive transport and share taxis provide a hybrid bus/taxi mode. There are four distinct forms of taxicab, which can be identified by slightly differing terms in different countries: ⁕Hackney carriages also known as public hire, hailed or street taxis, licensed for hailing throughout communities ⁕Private hire vehicles, also known as minicabs or private hire taxis, licensed for pre-booking only ⁕Taxibuses, also known as Jitneys, operating on pre-set routes typified by multiple stops and multiple independent passengers ⁕Limousines, specialized vehicle licensed for operation by pre-booking Although types of vehicles and methods of regulation, hiring, dispatching, and negotiating payment differ significantly from country to country, many common characteristics exist.
