    Where to?

    A taxi driver asked the passenger, "Where to?". Does "Where to?" mean "Where to go?" or "Where are you going to?"

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Where to?

    Where do you want to go?
    Where would you like me to take you?
    Where am I driving you [to]?
    Where shall I drive you to?

    "Where to?" isn't a shortened version of any particular question but it means all of the above, or any other version of the question a taxi driver asks in order to ascertain the destination.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
