Taxicard scheme

Taxicard offers subsidised travel in licensed taxis and private hire vehicles to London residents with serious mobility impairments or who are severely sight impaired. It enables members who have difficulty in using buses, trains and tubes to get out and about.

The scheme provides trips for social purposes such as:

  • going shopping
  • visiting friends and family
  • going out to events

Taxicard enables over 70,000 members to take around 1.22 million trips per year.

The scheme is paid for by local councils and Transport for London. It is administered London councils, with a contractor providing taxis and private hire vehicles.
