Taxicard

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

  • When you join, you'll be given 100 vouchers per year, each entitling you to £3.40 off your fare
  • Vouchers can only be used on fares of £4.40 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.

  • 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.

  • you can't walk more than 100 metres

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.
