The service was founded in 1947 with 329 cars. By 1960 the service increased to 1,026 cars. The number of taxis would multiply to 10,000 by 1980 and today, they are around 20, 000 including New Territories and Lantau Island. Every day they serve about 1.1 million, 207,900 and 1,400 people respectively.

There are three types of taxis in Hong Kong, namely, urban taxis (red), New Territories taxis (green), and Lantau taxis (blue).
