It provides the Call Taxi Service, whereby you can make a telephone call when you need a taxi, and the taxi will come to pick you up and take you to your destination.
However, if you just happen to catch this type of taxi on the street, you can ride it in the same manner as any general taxi. Payment by credit card and cash receipt issuance machines are installed on board.

You can recognize the Deungdae Call taxis by their orange "sign lamp" and "band". Those who wish to ride the taxi are asked to call the Call Center (☎ 600-1000) and a taxi will arrive in 3 to 5 minutes (this CDMA type service was first introduced by Deungdae Call).
