Taking a Taxi

Taxis are in service twenty-four hours a day, and can be hailed by raising one's hand. A taxi is not the most practical form of transportation due to the high expense. However it is useful to know that cabs are available (and in high demand) late at night after trains and buses have stopped running. After 2:00 a.m, one can often find taxis for hire at the train station.
