My take on this, which is not a levy on me is:

Taxi - which doesn't mean tax I.

Never living, but bearing life within. Often monochromatic, all around the world.

Cars with a driver & passengers. One colour, say black in London and yellow in New York.

Can be found on your phone, nowadays. Lined up together, taken in order.

There are phone apps to order a taxi. They park in a rank, and you take the one in front.

Under a label proclaiming its nature. Essential in some situations.

A taxi sign or light on top. Take one to get somewhere quick with no other transport.

Handing over money to escape: Every usage costs you dear.

Taxis fares are relatively expensive.

Raise your hand when in need: Each city has them everywhere.

May put your hand up to flag a taxi, which are common in cities.
