    come in

    Hi,
    I wonder if it's correct to say "they come in a taxi"?
    According to my knowledge, this phrasal verb means 'to arrive'
    I do understand the meaning of this sentence but don't you think one should have added a preposition between the 'in' and 'a'?

    Any explanation?
    Thanks in advance.

    There's no phrasal verb there. The verb is "come".
    "in" is a preposition. The sentence says how they come.
    "They come in a taxi."
    Or do you mean "They came in a taxi", "They are coming in a taxi."
    You can also say "They came by taxi", etc.
