This issue of Current Topics includes over 60 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on taxi, private hire car and paratransit transport. Topics covered include the role of the taxi as public transport, deregulation of the taxi industry, the design of taxis, taxi safety and in particular their accessibility for the disabled and for wheelchair users, and various alternative forms of public transport such as the minibus and jitneys. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 1997 and 2000. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database.
