Taxicard

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

  • When you join, you'll be given 100 vouchers, that you show to the taxi driver before every journey, each entitling you to £3.30 off your fare.
  • Vouchers can only be used on fares of £4.30 or more; you must pay at least £1 towards the fare.
  • Each book of vouchers is valid from 1 April to 31 March of the following year. Members joining the scheme after 1 April will be issued a proportionate amount of vouchers for the remainder of the year.
  • Scheme members will be contacted before April each year to confirm their continued eligibility for a Taxicard.
