Quote form Wikipedia about Hackney carriage
The Beardmore was an alternative taxi design used in London during the 1960s and 1970s
Until the late 1950s, vehicles licensed as London taxis were required to be provided with an open-access luggage platform in place of the front passenger seat found on other passenger cars (including taxis licensed for use in other British cities).
A hackney or hackney carriage (also called a cab, black cab, hack or London taxi) is a carriage or automobile for hire. A hackney of a more expensive or high class was called a remise.
Using taxi services
Taxis are very useful if you live in the city. How many times a month you happen to use the services of taxi transport? I suspect that at least several times a month, and many people use these services couple times a week.
It is worth considering why choose a Taxi- yet we have buses and metro. What makes the taxi is more convenient and better in some situations? I think it is a matter of getting on to it when and where you want and that you get exactly to the indicated address. This is luxury that you won't get in public transport.
Traveling abroad, especially transport, when we get there, can be very problematic. It is therefore important to plan everything, including how to get to the hotel from the airport, or how we drive between airports if necessary.
That's all you can plan his desk in preparation for departure. Transport companies and those offering airport transfers have their own websites through which foreign visitors can submit inquiries and orders. In this way, we will not have to worry about anything during the trip.
