Taxi Colors From Around The World

Taxi Colors From Around The World


From the classic Yellow cabs of New York City and Black cabs of London to the new Pink cabs in Mexico, it seems there's a different color cab for every city.

While many taxis colors are chosen to be easily recognizable to those who need a ride, sometimes cabs are color coded depending on the company they run under, like in Chicago which has no official cab color.

Sometimes cab colors can be protected under law, as in this case from Boston.

In Mexico, they went from Yellow to Green & White to White with a Bright Red stripe around them, and as of late, Burgundy Red and Gold. There is even a 'women only' Pink cab company.

In Shanghai only companies with more than a 1000 cabs can choose their own color leaving the city with a select group of 8 colors.
