The History Behind the Taxicab

Taxis have become legendary in American culture. You've seen Jimmy Fallon learn how to drive one on the big screen, Miley Cyrus sang about her experience inside one, and books often describe the hero or heroine's journey in this yellow vehicle. But haven't you ever wondered how taxis began? You have an idea that it might have something to do with the invention of the automobile. Or did taxis exist before the car? Here, we'll tell you everything about the taxis cab, from its humble beginnings to its visionary future. Taxis of the Past You might feel surprised to discover that taxis date back to 17th century Europe. Individuals during this time period hired horsedrawn hackney carriages to travel across London, Paris, and other major European cities. Usually merchants, innkeepers, and elitists employed this coach service. By the mid-1800s, however, carriage services saw a new, faster model called the hansom cab. Joseph Hansom designed a smaller, lighter carriage that only required one horse to pull it. In fact, these coaches could easily traverse city streets and travel around traffic.

And as engineers developed new technology, the car improved significantly. By the end of the 1897, the first motorized taxis came about. Walter C. Bersey created a line of taxicabs in London. And during this same time, Samuel's Electric Carriage and Wagon Company of New York employed a similar vehicle. Two years later, Friedrich Wilhelm Gustav Bruhn, a German inventor, crafted the Daimler Victoria, the first gasoline-powered and taximeter-equipped cab. And by 1907, New Yorkers could find this same vehicle on the city streets.
