Taxi Driver is a Job Diversion in Saints Row 2.


There is a prompt to start Taxi Driver upon entering any Taxi. The Diversion requires the driver to pick-up and drop-off Civilians around Stilwater within a certain time.

The time given is between 1:00 and 1:30, this stays the same through all 10 levels of the Diversion, but the distance of the pick-up point and drop-off point increases. Also, occasionally, the player has to do scary turns and "near misses" when someone tries to rob them.

It is not possible to switch Taxis mid-diversion, and destroying the Taxi fails Diversion.

As with Escort, there are different things which may happen

  • "The customer is in a hurry, get there fast"
  • "The customer wants you to drive slow and steady"
  • "The customer wants you to drive fast and recklessly"
  • "A rival taxi is trying to steal your customer"
  • "The customer is trying to mug you" - Near Misses and Oncoming Lane Driving Stunts must be performed to scare them off.

Obtaining a TaxiEdit

Taxis commonly drive almost everywhere in Stilwater, there are some parked Taxis near Wardill Airport building, but another easy way to get a Taxi is to call one on the Cellphone.

  • 555-819-8415 - Big Willy's Cab
  • 555-018-0174 - Eagleline Yellow
  • 555-455-8008 - TNA Taxi

These Taxis have different logos, but which Taxi is used has no effect on the Diversion.

Entering a called Taxi makes The Protagonist use the Taxi Service instead of stealing them vehicle, so the driver must be killed first.
