Fiaker Cab Rides
The "wage carriages" were the forerunners of today's modern taxis. The customers wanted to quickly get from A to B. Wage-drawn carriages were a faster way to reach one's destination than with the then common means of transport, the Senften or chair-bearers. The idea of wage-drawn carriages is about 300 years old and comes from Paris.
Around 1720, the term "Fiaker" was born in Vienna. Such a cab consisted of a coach and a team (2 horses and the coachman).
