  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key word "taxis" to get this source:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxis

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
