Rockstar has released a big new update for Grand Theft Auto Online. The new GTA Online update brings taxis to the forefront, letting users become a cabbie and earn fares from customers. There are also a selection of free items for the Chinese Year of the Rabbit. Indeed, if you play this week, you’ll receive a traditional Painted Rabbit Mask and Rabbit Tattoo, as well as GTA$188,888 to celebrate Lunar New Year.

As for the taxi service, players are encouraged to visit the Downtown Cab Co. depot on the corner of Tangerine Street and Mirror Park Boulevard in East Vinewood to get cracking.

Rockstar explains more: “Veteran Arena Warriors who reached Sponsorship Tier 25 can also use their special red version of the Taxi to complete fares.

“Drivers who aren’t ready to purchase their own cab can still launch Taxi Work by showing up for duty at Downtown Cab Co. Complete ten Taxi Work jobs in a row to earn the Taxi Star Award and unlock the Trade Price for the new Taxi.”

Better yet, players on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S can use fast travel when requesting a cab using the iFruit phone. GTA+ members can skip for free.
