Taxis for 5

We are going to new York and have 3 kids the youngest being 6 . It appears from the taxi websites that we can all fit in one. Does anyone know if a 6 year can travel on a parents lap in a yellow taxi. Many thanks

There isn't a lot of legroom in the backseat of most taxis. Taxis have seat belts, so I would recommend securing the children in the back and the adult up front.

There are also minivan taxis available that would work better for a group of 5.

Your children will really enjoy traveling on public buses and subways as well.

How big is your child? We have car seat rules for children.
