    Default catch a ...

    I would like to know the means of transportations which I can use with "catch".
    Is it correct "catch a plane, a taxi, a car, a bus, etc."?
    Is there a grammar rule to follow?
    Thanks a lot in advance

    I wouldn't use it for 'car'. I use it for public transport.
