you have to wait until you are at a certain point in the game, when it tells you, you can do it, then you can do it, not before

Answer

After like the 4th mission, the 1st one with nikos boss, this option becomes available. On ps3 hold L2 then hold Triangle to enter cab as a passenger, I don't have Xbox so I don't know the buttons.

Exactly that, I tried a lot of times using Lb and nothing happend until certain mission, then you have to hold Y to get in the back seat.

On PS3 it's L1+ hold Triangle

On 360 it's LB+ hold Y

Unlocked after a few missions are complete in the Story.

You have to be nearby a cab that doesnt have anyone in it. You whisle, and they will stop (ive actually had them screech and smash into a mailbox) and you hold the respective button to your console, and pick where you want to go.

And yes you can steal from other people. You can just get close to an occupied cab and hold the button. You get in - they get out, the driver asks where you are going.
