The Bickle'76 is a vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The Bickle'76 is a modified Taxi, which is visually distinguishable by its supercharger and its solid grille (as opposed to the standard 'egg-crate' grille seen on regular Taxis, giving the vehicle a passing resemblance to the 1992-93 Ford Crown Victoria), as well as a pair of fuzzy dice hanging from its rear view mirror. Occasionally, the vehicle will spawn without a taxi sign on the roof, resulting in a much sportier look.

The vehicle is seen in a red primary paint for the body and a grey secondary paint for the bumpers, and is decorated with checkered-pattern stripes on the sides. In the mobile version, these stripes are not present.

Superior to its stock counterpart, the Bickle has what appears to be a supercharger intake mounted on the hood. It possesses excellent acceleration and top speed due to the fitting of a supercharger, and the amount of power gained through such air compressor means the vehicle is converted to a RWD car, rather than FWD like the Taxi. The immense gain in power compensates for bad handling which is evidently caused by the lack of weight the car should have and a suitable steering radius.

The vehicle is powered by a diesel engine (in contrast with the petrol engine of the regular Taxi), coupled to a 5-speed gearbox and powering the rear wheels. Its engine sound is also louder, being identical to the one used by the Leone Sentinel.

  • The Bickle'76 is never seen being driven in the streets — it is only available once the player completes 100 taxi fares (or 98 in the mobile version), whereupon it can be found outside Mean Street Taxis in Trenton, Portland Island. Once the player is driving the Bickle '76, it will respawn at Mean Street Taxis again.

  • The taxi's name is taken from the lead character Travis Bickle, portrayed by Robert De Niro, in the 1976 Martin Scorsese film Taxi Driver. The car's spawn point outside Mean Street Taxis is a further reference to De Niro and Scorsese, as the two starred in and directed, respectively, the 1973 film Mean Streets.
  • There is a glitch in the PlayStation 2 version in which the Bickle may not immediately begin spawning after completing the side mission. It may be necessary to let a few days pass in the game before it begins showing up.
    • This glitch is worsened in the Mobile version in that the Bickle may not spawn at all after completing the mission, requiring players to constantly load a save game and visit Mean Street Taxis until one appears.
  • This is the second car in the series to feature a pair of fuzzy dice hanging on the mirror, with the first one being the Yardie Lobo and the third one being the Peyote.
  • Like the regular Taxis, there is a chance that the Bickle'76 may spawn without a sign on its roof.
