  • A hackney or hackney carriage is a carriage or automobile for hire. A hackney of a more expensive or high class was called a remise. In England, the name hackney carriage today refers to a taxicab licensed by the Public Carriage Office in Greater London or by the local authority in other parts of Great Britain, or by the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland. In the United States, the police department of the city of Boston has a Hackney Carriage Unit, analogous to taxicab regulators in other cities, that issues Hackney Carriage medallions to its taxi operators.
