After a certain mission in the campaign (involving Michael and Franklin) you can call a cab with your cell.

I don't know if there is a way to just hail one down.

Left or Right on the d-pad, and your character will whistle.

They'll also be in your phone after a few missions.

Is using a taxi a way to fast travel?

You can travel a long distance quite quickly this way. But until you have all three characters with maxed out driving skill, it's really worth just driving everywhere.

They actually reversed it this time around. You simply hit to utilize the taxi, and hold down to hijack the vehicle.

To hail the cab, it is .

I was simply referring to accidentally hijacking the taxi, once it has been hailed. Because I was holding down the just like I did in IV, and ended up stealing the taxi. If you are angled just right, it tells you to hit to use the taxi services.

Sounds like you need a video guide for this.

If you call the company, it'll drive up to you and you don't need to hail it, although you can if you want using the d-pad. Once the car stops for you, Y is to get in, Hold Y to hijack.

Just like how IV had this problem too. Make sure you're standing on a road when you make the call. Dirt paths can be a hit or miss sometimes as well. Just keep redialing, most cabs take around 10-20 seconds to appear and the taxi icon will appear on your minimap. They dont come straight to your feet either so have a look around.
