Taxi in street

Phnom Penh has had cyclos, the pedal-powered bench seat rickshaws, and then motorcycle taxis and then tuk-tuks, for a few years.  But now the newest entrant into the for-hire market are real taxis, available before only at the airport.  They started three or four years ago and now there are maybe five taxi companies competing for passengers.  The rates are relatively low.  The latest variation of taxis, though, is that we also have a taxi-app like Uber.  It’s called something like X-Taxi and all the booking is done on your phone.  Users tell me it’s often cheaper than a tuk-tuk.  There is no place to park taxis in Phnom Penh so this company has this eight or ten of them on the edges of a traffic roundabout.
