The Taxicard scheme allows people with disabilities to use black cabs at reduced fares. You must be unable to use public transport because of a permanent disability. All journeys made must either start or finish in the borough.
How to get a Taxicard
To be eligible you must be unable to use buses or trains because of either blindness or any permanent or long-term disability or injury which seriously impairs your ability to walk. The scheme is not available to people who suffer temporary disabilities (for example, a broken leg).
We have two levels of eligibility
Band A (104 trips)
For those who without a Taxicard would be unable to travel independently. Applicants must be virtually housebound, unable to use any form of public transport, need door to door transport, be unable to drive and not be in possession of a Freedom Pass.
Band B (60 trips)
For those who are generally unable to travel independently, but on occasions may be able to drive their own car. Applicants must be virtually housebound for most of the time, unable to use any form of public transport, able to drive on occasions and not be in possession of a Freedom Pass.
