The Bickle'76 taxi, as depicted in GTA Liberty City Stories.

The Bickle '76, or Bickle'76 in-game, is a supercharged Taxi featured in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is never seen being driven in the streets — it is only available once the player completes 100 taxi fares, whereupon it can be found outside Mean Street Taxis in Trenton, Portland Island. It is the only "unique" taxi not based on a Cabbie.

The Bickle '76 is visually distinguishable by its red paintjob, supercharger, solid grille (as opposed to the standard 'egg-crate' grille seen on regular Taxis), and the pair of fluffy dice hanging from its rear view mirror. Occasionally, this vehicle will spawn without a taxi sign on the roof, resulting in a much sportier look. The name of the taxi is taken from Travis Bickle, the lead character of the 1976 Martin Scorsese film Taxi Driver, starring Robert De Niro. Its location outside Mean Street Taxis may be an allusion to this -- Mean Streets was the name of an earlier Scorsese/De Niro collaboration.
