GTA Online Weekly Update Adds New Taxi Work Job

This week's GTA Online update adds Taxi Work, Chinese New Year rewards, and more.


GTA Online players can become taxi drivers with the game's latest Taxi Work update.

This week's patch is packed with new activities and content for players to enjoy, from free Chinese New Year rewards, new vehicles, discounts, and most notably the addition of Taxi Work.

To get started as a cab driver, players will need to visit Downtown Cab Co. depot on the corner of Tangerine Street and Mirror Park Boulevard in East Vinewood. Players can now purchase a taxi from Warstock Cache & Carry, allowing them to launch Taxi Work in their own Pegasus vehicle whenever they want.

Alternatively, players who can't purchase their own Taxi can still launch Taxi Work by showing up for duty at Downtown Cab Co. They'll need to complete 10 Taxi Work jobs in a row, however, to earn the Taxi Star Award and unlock the Trade Price for the new taxi. It's also noted that Veteran Arena Warriors who have reached Sponsorship Tier 25 can also use their special red version of the taxi to complete fares.

Chinese New Year Rewards

This week, players can get their hands on some celebratory Lunar New Year rewards, as well as a special log in bonus delivered within 72 hours.
