There are a lot of circumstances surrounding the use of a taxi in waking life. Thus it can symbolize many things in your dream – waiting for something to arrive, anticipation of something or someone, the use of it as a means of transportation, heading to a different place, doing something for work, travel, and so many other things.
These can all be representative of something else that will happen for you, or something else that will manifest in your world.

What does a dream about a taxi represent?
As mentioned, there are a lot of possible representations of a dream about a taxi. Here are some of them.
Symbolic of expectation or anticipation
A lot of the time in our waking lives, we just wait for a taxi to arrive. Sometimes it comes on time, sometimes it comes late, sometimes it doesn’t come at all.
A taxi in your dream could mean that you are awaiting something. It could be a person, an opportunity, a child – that is, if you want to become pregnant or are already pregnant, money, good fortune, among other things.
Symbolic of moving from one place to another
A taxi is a popular mode of transportation in the city. Maybe you are thinking about traveling, or moving jobs, or even moving houses. Your dream about a taxi could be representative of this move that you are about to make in your life.
Other times, it could also mean moving to different situations. An example would be, if you want to break up with the person you are romantically linked with as of the moment, and maybe take a breather or even be with someone else.
Or you may be living with certain people, or have close personal relationships with others, that you are not quite satisfied with, and you are contemplating on moving on from these relationships and not having to be bonded with them in the same way you were before.
Symbolic of good luck
The cab can also be symbolic that something good is coming your way. In a lot of big cities, it can be very hard to hail a taxi easily.
If you dream of getting a taxi, it means something you want will be coming to you very soon. Be in positive expectation of this so that you can easily spot it when it arrives.
Symbolic of financial gain
Dreaming of a taxi can also be symbolic of earning a good amount of money very soon. If you are in the middle of thinking about a new business proposal, or signing contracts, or are ruminating on an agreement you have made with possible partners, then your dream of a taxi can be a good sign – a nudge towards a positive direction regarding these impending partnerships.
Symbolic of travel
A dream about a taxi could also mean that you are going to travel to a nice place soon. Maybe you have been dreaming of a vacation – this is what you will be getting in your life.
Symbolic of efficiency
It is also quite efficient to go around via a taxi – you don’t need to drive and therefore worry about parking your car, and someone else is driving for you so you can do other things while in the vehicle.
This is symbolic of the efficiency of this tool, and may be a foreshadowing or an affirmation of the efficiency that you already have in your life.
Symbolic of change
Because you are moving from one place to another via this vehicle, a dream of a taxi could also be symbolic of a change that will happen in your life.
This change doesn’t have to be such a major one – it can also be seemingly mundane, such as a change of taste, a change of perspective, or a change of favorite food or color.
You may also suddenly fancy someone you never looked at in that way before. These small changes could be what represents your dream of a taxi.
Symbolic of escape
You may be in a situation right now that you just want to get out of, and this is causing you stress.
Your dream of a taxi could symbolize these feelings that you have, or could also be representative of the fact that escape is available to you as soon and as easily as you make the choice to get out of your situation or your mindset that is causing you stress.
You don’t have to listen to what other people think you should do – just listen to your heart and follow it so that life can be much easier for you – easier than how you think it should be.
Common Situations in which you dream of a taxi
Dream of hailing a taxi
Your dream of hailing a taxi means that you are a go-getter and don’t need other people to help you do what you need and want to do.
You are the type who will just go ahead and do it and won’t need help or permission from others. You get things done in an efficient manner.
Dream of calling a taxi for someone
This dream may mean that you are the type of person who always wants to help others so that they won’t be inconvenienced.
Just be careful because you may be helping those who believe that they don’t need your help and find your assistance intrusive.
There are those who may look at your efforts positively, but not everyone will look kindly on them, even if you have the best intentions. Make sure you are not stepping on any toes even as you try your best to help others around you.
Dream of waiting for a taxi that is taking a long time to come, or doesn’t arrive at all
This dream can be symbolic of frustration that you are harboring in your waking life. You may be waiting for something to happen, or someone to change, or just for a certain condition to be different in order that you may enjoy your life better and more fully.
This dream may be reminding you to let go – to not attach your happiness on other things being different in order for you to feel better.
You need a certain independence from these external circumstances and be happy no matter what – or else you will never be happy in your life.
This dream may be representative of your general frustration in life as well, and not necessarily regarding a certain person or thing. You keep waiting but don’t get what you need or want.
It may be time to shift your perspective and look elsewhere for the happiness or fulfillment you are seeking.
Dream of riding a taxi
If in your dream, you are already riding a taxi, then this represents a certain effectiveness in your life.
You get to achieve whatever you set your mind to, and you are just cruising along easily and effortlessly towards where you want to go.
This is a very good sign for you.
Dream of having an unpleasant taxi ride
If in your dream, you are not having much fun in your taxi ride – for instance, your driver may be rude or may smell bad, or he is not a very good driver and you are getting motion sickness; the air conditioning may not be comfortable for you; or the cab may not be in good condition – this symbolizes a certain discomfort you may have in a particular situation you are in in your waking life.
Maybe there is some dissatisfaction and you do not know how to handle it. You are simply taking it in and figuring out how you can make do with your circumstances, but you are not enjoying the process.
Dream of traffic in a taxi
This dream may be an omen for bad luck that you will run into. Make sure you are careful with what you think, do, and say – and clean up your vibration so you won’t have to run into this bad luck at all.
Dream of a red taxi
This dream may represent an emergency in your waking life, or a sense of urgency about something. Maybe you are working on a certain project and it is stressing you out extremely, making you feel like everything is an emergency.
Now may be the time to take a step back and relax – and realize that you don’t have to treat each concern as if it were an emergency.
Dream of a yellow taxi
This dream means that everything is going according to plan and you really have nothing to worry about. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the ride.
Dreaming of a taxi may seem like a mundane and run-of-the-mill event, but it could actually say a lot about your inner state.
Try to assess how you feel as you dream of it and as soon as you wake up, so that you may get an interpretation that fits your life and makes sense of it in a more accurate way.
