Seen in the city traffic..

“Stadista” written with assorted Volkswagen letters (apparently OEMs) on the rear of VW Passat. It’s Helsinki cab. Stadi is a nickname for Helsinki, like Frisco, Big Apple and such. Derived from swedish word stad which means city. And Stadista then means “from Helsinki”. So, if you can’t read the cab light, you get the city from here. All cabs in greater Helsinki have their city typed in the beacon light so everyone knows when someone is eating from others’ table. ūüėČ
