A Bickle'76 in GTA Liberty City Stories.
Vehicle type Public taxi
Body style 4-door sedan
Capacity 4 (driver and 3 passengers)
Appearance(s) GTA Liberty City Stories
How/Where to get it Complete 100 taxi fares

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. Once the player is driving the Bickle '76, it will respawn at Mean Street Taxis again. It is the only "unique" taxi not based on a Cabbie.

The Bickle '76 is visually distinguishable by its red paint job, its supercharger, and its solid grille (as opposed to the standard 'egg-crate' grille seen on regular Taxis), and the pair of fuzzy 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. However when the player starts the Taxi Driver (with no taxi sign), the roof will glow, which is possibly a bug or a glitch. The name of the taxi is taken from the actor Travis Bickle, the lead character of the 1976 Martin Scorsese film Taxi Driver, portrayed by 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.
