    Member milleniumcab is a taxi driver and frequent contributor to the forum's New York Taxi thread, which in retrospect is probably where this discussion should have taken place.

    Default Long time surfer...

    ...first time poster. Let me say I am fixated with NYC as of late and would love to pay an extensive visit in the near future.

    So about taxicabs; is it possible to ride up front? If you get into the front is it a bit weird for the driver?

    A cab will carry up to four passengers. In that case one would sit up front. When cabbing alone I've never asked to sit in the front seat.

    More for the view through the windscreen than anything else

    Makes it easier to converse aswell if the driver speaks English.

    A cab driver, in any city or country does not want you up front unless it's necessary due to space.

    If riding alone, you should be in the back, on the right side of the car (or vice versa in a country with right hand drivers position).

    In short, you should be where the cab driver is able to have eye contact with you in the mirror.
