Taximeter Cabriolet
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.
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.

With New York's Taxi of Tomorrow now being called the Taxi of Today because there are taxis on the streets today that used to be called the "taxi of tomorrow" but today is a day in which we have those taxis, it got me thinking.

This edited article about taxis originally appeared in Look and Learn issue number 340 published on 20 July 1968. The novel and popular French carriage was called a 'cabriolet' on account of its movement, and this was shortened to cab, by John Millar Watt The 8,000 taxis which jostle London’s traffic are descendants of horse-drawn hire-carriages stabled at inns around London from the year 1625 onwards.

Taxi trivia | Secret London
The difference between a ‘taxi’ and a ‘cab’ is that a taxi has a taximeter. It’s often claimed the taximeter was invented by German Baron von Thurn und Taxis but it was Wilhelm Bruhn and the word comes from French: ‘taxi’ meaning ‘tax’ and metre. They have been compulsory since 1907.
