Unparalleled flexibility
Taxis offer an immediately recognisable andpopular transport service worldwide. Services arequick, operate from door-to-door and are readilyavailable, both in cities and rural areas, makingthe taxi the most flexible form of public transportavailable for all social groups.Passengers are free to choose their destinationand are not bound to timetables and set stops.Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days aweek, with multiple ways of getting a taxi: byphone, through the internet, from taxi standsor by hailing one directly on the street. In mostcities, advanced booking systems calling onlythose taxis located in close proximity to the useralso reduce the time needed to get a taxi.The highest demand for taxis in cities occurs atnight and weekends, when other forms of publictransport are reduced or stopped. In many cities,taxis are the primary, if not the only, form ofpublic transport available late at night.
