The Chinese word 出租车 means “taxi” in English. It is a compound word made up of three characters: 出 meaning “out,” 租 meaning “rent,” and 车 meaning “car.” The word is commonly used in China to refer to a vehicle that can be hired for transportation purposes, usually by paying a fare. It is often seen in cities and urban areas, where taxis are a popular mode of transportation for locals and tourists alike.
