I found it neat to see diffrent taxis in diffrent cities for some reason. Like New Yorks Yellow Cab is the most popular, im not sure about Chicago. Anybody have any pics of your cities most popular taxi?

In Swedish cities there is no standard for how the taxis should look like. Most taxis are big black stationwagon Volvos or Benz'es though. But you can pretty much end up in anything from a five year old red Opel Astra to a big black Mercedes S-klasse.
In Copenhagen all taxis are Mercedeses in various shapes and sizes (smallest ones are C-klasses iirc).
In Shanghai, all taxis are of the wonderful Volkswagen Santana model. :D

I don't have any pictures of them that I took myself, other than this one from the internet. Roy's Taxi which was founded here in Austin in 1931 was the city's 2nd largest taxi service behind Yellow Cab. It was recently sold however to Yellow Cab.
Yellow Cab, and a Roy's Taxi van.
Roy's Taxi was the first taxi service in the city to break racial barriers by allowing passengers of all races to ride and by giving jobs to people of all races.
