The Yellow Taxi is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the New York Tour and is the signature kart of Pauline. As its name indicates, it is designed after a yellow cab. Although it has two tailpipes, the exhaust flames shoot out from below the tailfins, making them the actual exhaust pipes. The emblem is located on the hood ornament and the exhaust pipes. It uses the Slim tires from Mario Kart 7 in-game, although two official screenshots show it with the Pipe Frame's tires instead. The Yellow Taxi increases the duration of Jump Boost boosts and the number of points earned for performing Jump Boosts.

There are three variants of this kart: a platinum variant called the Platinum Taxi, which was exclusive to the Holiday Tour, a red variant called the Red Taxi, exclusive to the Peach Tour, and a Valentine's Day variant called the Rose Taxi, which is exclusive to the Peach vs. Daisy Tour; all variants also have the High-End classification.


The Yellow Taxi has only appeared in certain pipes and is not a part of the Daily Selects set. The table below shows this kart's availability by tour.
