Taxi cards for disabled people

The Taxi Card scheme allows people with disabilities to use black cabs at reduced fares. You must be unable to use public transport because of permanent disability. 

The purpose of the Taxi Card scheme is to provide a means of transport for those who are chronically disabled in order that they may make social trips out. It is not to be used to provide transport for hospital or clinic appointments.

All journeys made must either commence or finish in the borough.

Who is eligible​?

To be eligible you must be unable or virtually unable to use buses or trains because of either blindness or any permanent or long-term disability/injury which seriously impairs your ability to walk. The scheme is not available to people who suffer temporary disabilities (e.g. a broken leg).

To join the scheme you must:

1. Be able to use ordinary black taxis
2. Have access to a telephone (for booking taxis)
3. Be resident in one of the participating London boroughs
