Calling a Taxi

Calling a Taxi

How do you call a Taxi? It says in the manual that "a cab will hail at the sound of a whistle" but, how do you whistle?

Press LB with a Taxi near by, and you will hail a taxi. Go up to it, and hold 'Y' to get in as a passenger, otherwise you'll hijack the car, accidently.

When near a cab, press the LB button, and you will hear niko whistle.

When the cab stops, hold Y until niko gets in the back of the cab. You then have to click where you want to go, from the options on the screen in the cab.

You have to wait until this ability is unlocked before it works. You get it really early however.

When you get Vlads first mission it tells you how to hail a cab. You can't do it before this but the mission is very early on in the game so you don't have to wait too long for it.

And you have to press LB when near a taxi and then HOLD Y, he'll get into the back seat. If you just tap Y he still steals the car.
