Taxis and buses have a unit number painted on them to identify them within a particular fleet. It is just a \"unit number\", not to be confused with the license plate number. (Mexico)

I have often wondered where the \"económico\" part came from, it would seem more reasonable to say \"unidad número\", \"número de unidad\", etc. which are also used in different situations, but I have never found out; I just know that\'s what it is.
