If there is no public transit or you need to go somewhere quickly, you can hire a taxi or cab. These are cars with a lighted roof sign. To find a taxi, check the local Yellow Pages directory under "Taxis" or by searching the Yellow Pages online at Yellowpages.ca.
You can call a taxi company and ask them to pick you up at your address at a specific time. When you get inside the taxi, beside the driver you will see a meter, which displays a minimum charge.
