Toyota Crown Comfort Taxi Gift Set

Here are the four variations of the Toyota Crown Comfort Taxi by Tomica. These Taxis can be found in the busy streets of Hong Kong and Macau (Black).

The Hong Kong Taxis are divided into 3 types and color coded to easily identify the service area of each type but all of them serve Hong Kong International Airport and Disneyland.

Urban Taxi

The red taxis have the highest fares among all, and serve all areas of Kowloon, Hong Kong Island. They may run Tung Chung (Lantau), the Airport at Chek Lap Kok (Lantau) and Disneyland, but are not permitted to run the rest of Lantau Island. These taxis can only carry passengers in the Lantau or New Territories areas if the passengers are returning to Kowloon or Hong Kong Island, or must return to their service areas themselves to continue their business.

New Territories Taxi

The green taxis, the second most expensive, serve only parts of the New Territories, including Sai Kung, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Fanling, Sheung Shui, Ma On Shan, Tai Po, West of Ting Kau, North of Chuen Lung and North of CUHK, except Lantau Island, Tseung Kwan O, Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi. They are allowed to serve the taxi stands at Sha Tin Racecourse, Prince of Wales Hospital, Shun Lee Estate, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Hang Hau Station, Tsing Yi Station and Tsuen Wan Station, which are designated interchange with red taxis. Although they serve the Airport and Disneyland, they do not serve Tung Chung and the rest of Lantau Island.

Lantau Island Taxi

The blue taxis run exclusively on southern Lantau Island, Tung Chung, the Airport and Disneyland, thus they are restricted to a small area. They are not quite as visible since there are only around 50 of them.

Macau Taxi

These Taxis are all over the airport, the Hong Kong-Macau ferry terminal, major gaming venues and hotels in the city though it is rather hard to get one during rush hours on the streets. There are two types of livery on Macau's taxis - one is a black body with cream color top (the black cab) and the other is yellow on the whole (the yellow cab).
