Whether you're late, in a hurry, or just don't want the inconvenience of using public transportation, the natural thing will be to call a taxi. This isn't exactly the case in Moscow, where the taxi service could sometimes be better and where there are traffic jams galore. Still, there comes a time when calling a cab is the only solution.

Our lesson will help you to order a taxi and will warn you about some of the more unsavory aspects of the Russian service mentality. In today's grammar, we are dealing with time references: When exactly did you want your taxi to be there? And when will it actually arrive? Let's find it out in the lesson.
