Taxis | GTA Wiki
In the Grand Theft Auto range, taxi journeys relate to the capability of taking a taxi to parts of a town, as distinct from hijacking a car. Practically a kind of "teleportation", the features allow the players to achieve almost any goal without the effort of travelling alone.
It' s built into just a fistful of gameplay, among them Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Grand Theft Auto V. The capability to drive a taxi was first introduced to a certain extent in GTA Vice City as a mere means of repeating unsuccessful quests when the gamer is in an arrest or killing.
Upon resurfacing in a clinic or policing post, a tagged Kaufman Cab is laid out in front of it, which can be driven to the tag that enabled the unsuccessful quest, enabling the players to repeat the quest more quickly. Spilling The Beans, where Tommy can take a taxi to the Malibu Club at the beginning of the missions.
Taxi in GTA Vice City costs $9 a trip. This function has also been largely retained in the GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories (both of which take over the GTA Vice City gameplay mechanics). The only thing the player could do was start calling and driving in a taxi at will and taking taxi trips to almost any destination at a flexible price in GTA IV.
There is no possibility to ride in a taxi at the beginning of the match, but it must be activated by finishing quests after the quests of the Bull in a China Shop quest have been activated. Walking, the players can call for a taxi by pushing the corresponding buttons, and provided the main character is not wanted by the cops, takes a backseat and will be taken anywhere in the town for a charge.
Please note that a taxi can only be boarded as a passanger if the user presses the boarding and alighting buttons. A simple push of a switch causes the main character to kidnap the rider. Players who act aggressive or get a desired ride in a taxi, stop the cars and run away out of anxiety.
However, if the gamer succeeds in catching a busy taxi, it can still be boarded - the gamer pulls the gamer from the back and gets in. There will be no refund from the riders and no response from the drivers. As a rule, this is simpler to do if the taxi is either travelling at low speed or fixed (e.g. stop at an interchange or wait for the main character to leave).
Boarding a taxi, the players can use a car control panel to guide the drivers to various pre-set orientation points (safe deposit boxes, deployment sites, leisure amenities such as lanes for bows or the Helitours deposit, etc.) or to a player-defined waypoint, and on some deployments the players can take a taxi to (stationary) missionsigns.
Taxi fares are based on distances and the question of whether the passenger has used the "Trip-Skip" method (where the travel is omitted altogether, the taxi continues to drive at its current position and the costs of double the ticket price). Players can also choose to give out a "hurry" setting that causes the rider to ignore the rules of the street and drive to the finish asap.
The taxi rate is free of charge if the taxi operator leaves the taxi first (e.g. tips over). According to Niko Bull missions, he can get free taxi trips from Roman Bellic in a China shop and after the gamer has made 60% friends (Roman will call the gamer as soon as the services are available).
At the beginning of the play, Roman's taxi cars are tailor-made Esperantos darkgray (see Roman's Taxi), but as his fortune rises, his firm changes to cavalcade dark-gray. Roman sent a taxi and it can still be used if the gamer has a desired skill and can still be fired out of the vehicle without frightening the gamer.
Taxis cannot be ordered for back-to-back journeys as Roman will indicate that no vehicles are available. Between Roman's Sorrow and your cover your duty is not available due to the demolition of the garages; an SMS sent by Roman shortly after completion of the latter duty will reactivate the work.
The GTA Chinatown Wars maintains the GTA IV taxi driving system with several changes. No Cabbie can be accessed by any of the participants as they can only be accessed after the participant has called a taxi which stops the taxi and is indicated by flashing green checks showing where the participant should go to get into a taxi in order to become a participant.
Once you enter a Cabbie, you can select almost any place in Liberty city, as in GTA IV, as well as the customary game locations. However, instead of a simple target selection switch, the user is shown a card of the town, so that he can immediately locate his target using a card indicator.
Once a target is selected, the gamer is dealt with a similar intermediate scene of the taxi that the gamer is on the way to the target and that the gamer can jump over. As with GTA IV, the price of a taxi trip depends on the journey length; the longer the trip, the more costly it is.
Taxis back to GTA Vol. In GTA Vol the entry/exit orders are changed, which means that the players now press the knob to get into a taxi as a passanger and hold it to kidnap the car.
Although the main characters can no longer use their guns in the taxi. Now, the main characters can use their smartphone to get a taxi to their destination. From now on, the characters will be able to jump out of a taxi and not pay for the trip, at the expense of obtaining an immediately desired one.
In order to get out of the cabin before it reaches its target, the players can now ask the rider to stop and get out of the car before it reaches its target. In this case each additional taxi ride is free of cost. GTA Online also offers taxi rides.
Players cannot jump over the journey, however, and if the user pushes the "Haste" key, the rider will not go at top speeds, making the taxi journey somewhat inadvisable. There is a scarce possibility in GTA IV that a taxi will be spawning with a woman on it. GTA 5, even if the rider asks the rider to "hurry", he may still stop at traffic signals and refuses to take certain unpaved highways.
