14 May, Thursday

On May 14, 1909 the «Saint-Petersburg taxi» company started working

The vehicles used were manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. The «Saint-Petersburg taxi» did not last long, but there were other companies providing taxi service, as it was very popular among the citizens: new stations were built, the service of calling a taxi to the doorstep appeared and the cars worked 24/7. The taxi companies were closed down when World War I began, as the army needed vehicles and men. After the revolution the taxi service was eliminated and restored only in 1919 with Leningrad taxi park.
