Brilliant Aniket! In Beirut taxis were used as either a taxi, carrying one passenger, or a Service, picking up up to 5 passengers. Shared taxi, or Service costed a fifth of the cost of the cab ride. This could be done with AVs as well except that it could pose a danger in the US, because you don’t know if a passenger could prove dangerous. I never had to worry about that in Beirut!
