You recognize cabs in New York for their color. Most of them are yellow. You could say that yellow cabs are a kind of landmark in New York City. Using cabs in New York isn’t very expensive unless the taxi driver tries to fool you. The only extra cost when you use the cabs is tips. You have to tip the driver but if you split the bill for example with your friends like I did when we used taxi in NYC, it won’t cost practically anything!
