You can also travel by subway, train, boat, plane and on foot. Follow your map for clues. Contacts will appear with their first initials on your map, and you can pickup new jobs by going to phones which appear as phone icons on the map. You are the white dot on your map and pink dots indicate the direction you want to head in for mission completion.
