Derives from the movie Taxi Driver, in which Robert De Niro plays psychotic cabbie Travis Bickle. A term used to describe a disillusioned person on the fringes of society about to have a violent, nervous breakdown. Also used to describe an anti-hero of a story.
That guy looks like his going to do a Travis Bickle. Or The main character is like a Travis Bickle.
