Some people take a bus. Most communities have buses that take people to different places. People wait at a bus stop until the bus comes. They pay when they get on the bus.
Some people take a taxi. A taxi is a car that drives people where they want to go. People call a taxi company. They tell the taxi company where to send a taxi to pick them up. When people get in a taxi, they tell the taxi driver where they are going. People pay the taxi driver at the end of the trip.
