Taxicabs 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.
Organized transport of passengers from the airports
With air travel is currently used by a lot of people. This is because the employees of different companies need to move between the various branches, and many private individuals have family and friends even in the most remote parts of the world.
Therefore airports organize for its clients with different means of transport, which can be used both on the way to the airport and on the way from the airport to a private home or hotel. Available airport transfers also create the opportunity to transport luggage or several people in one vehicle. Information about such airport transfers can be found on the airport websites and on various boards of timetables.
The Commission for Taxi Regulation - quote from Wikipedia
The Commission for Taxi Regulation (also An Coimisiún Um Rialáil Tacsaithe and Taxi Regulator) was a public body in Ireland that existed between 2004 and 2011 regulating small public service vehicles (SPSVs) - the generic term for taxis, wheelchair accessible taxis, hackneys and limousines.
Taxis and wheelchair-accessible taxis are allowed to pick up passengers in the street or at a stand and have their fares calculated by a meter; hackneys and limousines do not use meters and are not permitted to pick up passengers in the street or at a stand.
The Commission set a single maximum fare structure for taxis for all places in the Republic of Ireland, although drivers are allowed to offer discounts and customers are permitted to give tips to drivers.
Kathleen Doyle was appointed the Commissioner for Taxi Regulation in 2007
