Taxicabs in Wikipedia
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. This differs from other modes of public transport where 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.
Organization of travels
How quickly and for very little money to organize the transport of several people? Although the most economical solution is to use the local transport or intercity, this is not always possible. A good solution in many cases turns out to hire a taxi as it unfolded costs for all participants of the expedition is a really small cost. It is no wonder that many people choose to rent a particularly large taxis, which can seat up to eight people. Of course, you can also rent a bus or other vehicle, but in that case you have to reckon with the already far higher costs, dependent on many factors.
Passenger transport - taxi why?
Although most people taxis can seem quite expensive and not very cost-effective means of transport, but sometimes there is no other choice. In many places public transport simply does not go, and if you do not know the area, after which we move may be an additional difficulty. Therefore it is worth to take a taxi, especially when traveling in some people. There are in fact special, larger cab, which allows passage of a greater number of people. I must admit that this solution is cost effective, because after splitting the cost of travel, for example, seven or eight people quickly notice that the cost per person is not as great as it might seem. No wonder that the taxis are very popular means of transport.
