It is possible to take public transit in the game in addition to the cab. Trains and the subway (mostly in the northern half of the island) are two options. It is important to keep in mind, however, that you will not be able to get anywhere with them as you can with an Uber or similar service. Only certain routes can be used by these modes of transportation.
