TAXI DRIVER JOB GUIDES & TIPS



How do I work as a Taxi Driver?

You just need to take the job from the locations (I'll state them below with screenshots), You can also do it with your own Taxi/Cabbie even if you have another job by pressing N. It automatically changes your job to taxi driver. Peds are in Los Santos and San Fierro, you can't find them out of city. You can also pick online players up and earn money.

There are 2 different blips on the map that you need to know.

- Those are the peds that you need to pick up (You can't pick two peds up at the same time).
- This is the destination that you must bring peds.

You'll be paid each time you bring peds to the locations. The payment depends on distance and level. Each time you level up you also earn bonus cash. There are also VIP peds which has red ped blip on map; if you deliver them in 70 seconds, you%u2019ll be paid twice.

You can take taxi driver job from

Doherty, San Fierro
Conference Center, Los Santos

You can also mark them on GPS (T > /gps > Jobs.)

You need to enter the buildings and enter into the yellow-orange marker in order to take the job.

You can use Taxi, Cabbie and Taxi S with this job; you can spawn taxi and cabbie from huge yellow-orange marker which is located next to the buildings.

Taxi Driver Levels: You can earn more money (still depends on distance) when you level up. Once you are L10, you can use /go taxi driver and take the job without going to the job location. When you leveled up to L10, you also earn $1,000,000 extra cash by achieving an achievement (Crazy Taxi).

You can see your levels and these requirements by pressing F3.

Levels and their requirements:

L0 - $0 Earnings - Training
L1 - $178,500 Earnings - Junior Driver
L2 - $535,500 Earnings - Trained Driver
L3 - $1,249,500 Earnings - Senior Driver
L4 - $2,320,500 Earnings - Specialist Taxist
L5 - $3,748,500 Earnings - Professional
L6 - $5,533,500 Earnings - Tourist Manager
L7 - $7,675,500 Earnings - First Class Driver
L8 - $10,174,500 Earnings - Executive
L9 - $14,050,500 Earnings - Celebrities Class
L10 - $17,850,000 Earnings - President & CEO

Can I transport online players and what will I earn?

You can transport online players and you can earn $500 every 15 seconds so $2000 in a minute and yes, it's $600 if you are VIP. Always communicate with players on team chat, it will make the job more enjoyable and you can find more online players who needs a taxi.



Some tips from me; always bring your jerry cans and repair kits with you because it isn't hard to hit somewhere even if you are pro at driving, someone definitely hits you and flips your car.

*If you press N in a short time after you picked the ped, it directly sets the GPS to the destination.*

Also you can complete "Basic Fuel Skills" for fill up your tank an extra 20% for free, you can make profit by doing that.

If you want to drive a fast acceleration car (in narrows streets, it gives you a great advantage to speed up fast) while working as a taxi driver in city, Taxi S is the best choice for you. Cabbie has the greatest suspension and easier to flip back when flipped and Taxi is the fastest when you need to drive for long distance.

Lastly, you also need food because you lose hp when you hit somewhere.

You are be able to leave your taxi for 20 seconds when you have a passenger (ped) without losing it.

Failure is simply an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

Tips from server; You can earn 20% more if you complete "Road Safety' from /courses and %30 more when you use your own Cabbie, Taxi or Taxi S.

You are be able to leave your taxi for 30 seconds when you have a passenger (ped) without losing it.

Removed them from the guide since it was outdated and changed 30 seconds to 20 seconds since it is not 30 anymore.

Hello there,
I have some points that you may consider adding,
Vehicles:
  • Taxi - Speed: Good Handling: Fair Acceleration: Fair
  • Cabbie - Speed: Fair Handling: Good Acceleration: Fair
  • Taxi S - Speed: Fair Handling: Good Acceleration: Very good
Reccomended Vehicle: Taxi S

I think this will make the guide a little more informative.

Thank you for your additions, I've added their comparison in the tips part so players can choose which one suits them most in different situations.

If you want to drive a fast acceleration car (in narrows streets, it gives you a great advantage to speed up fast) while working as a taxi driver in city, Taxi S is the best choice for you. Cabbie has the greatest suspension and easier to flip back when flipped and Taxi is the fastest when you need to drive for long distance.
