a motor vehicle that transports passengers or freight for a fare based on the reading of a taximeter. Taxis first appeared in London in 1903 and in St. Petersburg in 1907. Taxis may be production passenger cars, trucks, or dual-purpose vehicles, or they may be vehicles specially designed for taxi service, with larger baggage compartments, heavy-duty door hinges and locks, and other special features. Minibuses also provide a type of taxi service. They travel over specific routes and make stops according to a timetable, and passengers are charged a standard fare.
