    Hi,

    This should be an easy one, for for some reason I'm struggling. Would -
    "J'ai pris un taxi depuis chez moi à la gare"?
    (or is it jusqu'à la gare?)

    If you do not mention the starting point, can you still use just à with the endpoint? For example, if I say "J'ai pris un taxi à Paris", can this mean "I took a taxi to Paris", or can it also mean "I took a taxi in Paris"?

    Can one say "J'ai pris un taxi vers Paris / jusqu'à Paris" to disambiguate?

    Merci.
