Hackney carriages, also known as public hire, hailed or street taxis, licensed for hailing throughout communities.

Private hire vehicles, also known as minicabs or private hire taxis, licensed for pre-booking only.

Taxibuses, also come in many variations throughout the developing countries as jitneys or jeepney, operating on pre-set routes typified by multiple stops and multiple independent passengers.

Limousines, specialized vehicle licensed for operation by pre-booking.

Although types of vehicles and methods of regulation, hiring, dispatching, and negotiating payment differ significantly from country to country.

 many common characteristics exist. Disputes over whether ridesharing companies should be regulated as taxicabs resulted in some jurisdictions creating new regulations for these services.

17th century hackney coaches in Sir Walter Gilbey‘s Early Carriages and Roads (1903)

Horse-drawn for-hire hackney carriage services began operating in both Paris and London in the early 17th century. The first documented public hackney coach service for hire was in London in 1605.[10]

 In 1625 carriages were made available for hire from innkeepers in London and the first taxi rank appeared on the Strand outside the Maypole Inn in 1636.[11]

 In 1635 the Hackney Carriage Act was passed by Parliament to legalise horse-drawn carriages for hire. Coaches were hired out by innkeepers to merchants and visitors. 

A further “Ordinance for the Regulation of Hackney-Coachmen in London and the places adjacent” was approved by Parliament in 1654.

 And the first hackney-carriage licences were issued in 1662.

A similar service was started by Nicolas Sauvage in Paris in 1637.[13] 

His vehicles were known as fiacres, as the main vehicle depot apparently was opposite a shrine to Saint Fiacre.

 (The term fiacre is still used in French to describe a horse-drawn vehicle for hire.

 while the German term Fiaker is used, especially in Austria, to refer to the same thing.
