A payphone is a public telephone, with payment by inserting money (usually coins) or a debit card (a special telephone card or a multi-purpose car) or credit card before a call is made.
Payphones are often found in public places, transportation hubs such as airports or train stations, and on street corners. In some cases payphones are mounted in drive-up structures in which people in automobiles could make calls while still in their vehicles.
Payphones are basic and vital links in the chain of communications.
