How do planes steer on the ground?

Surprise surprise. Planes do not use ailerons to steer on the ground.

Many of you probably already know that by now, but did you know that most planes don’t normally use rudders to taxi to the runway either? Here’s a vídeo by Captain Joe, explaining how it all works. This is a very useful video for those of you curious!
