Taxicab definition 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.

What we do? We call for a taxi and in a few minutes we're going home. What is interesting with such courses taxi drivers do not earn much, the majority goes to fixed costs and fuel.
Intercity routes or airport transportation is the most profitable routes for the taxi driver and transport companies. The more such routes during the month, the better for the driver. Shorter routes is more filling and the way to the taxi does not stay for all day long.
