Taxi rides, don't pay.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but if you are are in a taxi pull a "drive-by" randomly before the cab comes to a complete stop; When you do this, the cab driver will get out and start running off. You can even kill him from the "drive-by" perspective to profit(pick up his droppings) from taking a taxi ride. Free cab ride, and maybe a little bit of dough never hurt. =]

But the poor cabbie! He deserves to be paid and stuff, because it's important to support the economy. If you don't support the economy, then you are a terrorist!

There are several points in the story when the cab service is not available.

Or you could just drive there yourself.

There are several reasons for using a cab, including getting there faster(using the skip button) and avoiding a wanted level from stealing cars. Driving two islands away is not always the best/funnest route.

How many of you actually sit out the cap ride? That kind of beats the purpose of it, skip the trip!

What are you talking about? You don't need to sit out the entire ride for this to work. When you skip the ride, you are still in the car for a few seconds before you get out; this is when i generally do my drive by to get him out.

This has been posted before nad I tried it a bit then, it only works when the cab hits something when stopping (like the cars parked at your Algonquin savehouse) since it takes a few more seconds before it lets you out, but in open spaces it will let you out before the gun starts firing.

And you won't get a star from killing a Cabbie?

It depends on if any cops are around, and even if they are; escaping a (1) star isn't hard at all in this game. I usually don't get caught when i kill him, anyways. However, if you do get caught, i could see how it could defeat the purpose of doing this. It's just a tip, anyways.

most of the time roman's service is not available, he always says there are no cabs available or it's the answer phone so i don't bother.

:S He seems to be available to me most of the time, perhaps it depends on how much time you spend with him.

Kinda off topic but i'm pretty sure I hopped in a cab when the cops were looking for me and was able to get away that way.

He probably doesnt like you. Seriously. I think if his like stat drops too low, he wont let you take a cab.
