legally--

The maximum amount of passengers allowed in a yellow taxicab by law is four (4) in a four (4) passenger taxicab or five (5) passengers in a five (5) passenger taxicab, except that an additional passenger must be accepted if such passenger is under the age of seven (7) and is held on the lap of an adult passenger seated in the rear.

whatever you do, don't take a ride with the black cars that solicit along the taxi lines.

I think there are 5 person taxis but I don't know how plentiful they are. I think I would arrange a ride with Dial 7 or some other company.
