  • Description

    These taximen of the Moscow Taxi Park are working on cabs equipped with radio-communication.

    Note, the radio aerials on these Volga cars are raised. For the convenience of the passengers and also in order to eliminate the idleness of taxicabs in the city a radio-communication service has been introduced. Here we are at one of its stations, located in the tall building on Kotelnicheskaya Babankment.

    Keeping in touch with the taxicabs on line the dispatcher knows where the cabs are.

    Attention! Attention! Centre 3 is calling...

    vacant cabs in the vicinity of Taganka street, Zubovskaya Square. Pushkin Square and those following that direction report to Centre 3. I repeat: Centre 3 is on the line...Centre 3 is on the line ...

    Bogolyubov, follow to Karetniy Ryad House No. 5/10 flat No. 73. Make haste! The passengers are late for the train.

    Twenty-five! Twenty-five! report where are you now.

    But the driver of taxicab 25 has another assignment.

    Centre! 25 is calling... I am at Sanotyochneys Square on assignment. The taximan was advised of the address where passengers were waiting for him in the street. Should you happen to visit Moscow and ben in need for a taxi, don't forget the phone: Bee 1 - 13 - 70
