What is TaxiCard?
The TaxiCard scheme can help people with mobility difficulties travel independently. It allows them to travel with one of our approved taxi companies at a discounted price. Members get issued with a card which is credited with a set amount of money every year - they use the money on their card to help pay towards each journey they make.
How do you join?
TaxiCard is an annual scheme, but there are two opportunities to join each year - the leaflet attached below sets out the application deadline dates.
Firstly, you will need to qualify for membership of the TaxiCard scheme. If you think you meet the right criteria you can request an application form and apply straightaway. You will, however, need to provide proof of the benefits you receive with your application.
