Taxicard

The Taxicard scheme helps disabled people on low incomes pay for taxi journeys.

  • When you join, you'll be given 100 vouchers per year, each entitling you to £3.50 off your fare
  • Vouchers can only be used on fares of £4.50 or more – you must pay at least £1 towards the fare
  • You must show the driver your voucher before starting your journey

Each book of vouchers is valid from 1 April to 31 March of the following year. If you join the scheme after 1 April you will be issued a proportionate amount of vouchers for the remainder of the year. You will be contacted before April each year to confirm your continued eligibility for a Taxicard.

Apply for a Taxicard

  • Print and complete the Taxicard application form [PDF, 134kB] and return it by post to Taxicard Administrator, PO Box 700, Cambridge CB1 0JH
  • Include copies of any supporting evidence such as letters awarding benefits and a passport-sized photograph

When your application is approved you'll be sent your book of Taxicard vouchers, and a list of participating taxi firms.

If you don't receive any of the secondary allowances you're still eligible for a taxicard if you're unable to use public transport because:

  • you can't walk without a walking aid such as a frame/crutches etc.
  • you can't walk more than 100 metres
  • you're unable to stand unsupported for more than 5 minutes

Further information

  • A trip is a one-way journey.
  • If you lose your vouchers we can replace them.
  • Additional passengers may accompany you on your journey at no extra cost.
  • For each journey, only one Taxicard voucher will be accepted by the taxi driver, no matter how many Taxicard holders are travelling at the same time.
