Taxicard service

The Taxicard scheme helps disabled people who live in Cambridge and have a low income to pay for taxi journeys.

The current scheme runs from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023. When you join the scheme, we will give you vouchers worth up to £150 – the number of vouchers will reduce if you join the scheme partway through the year.

Some vouchers will be worth £1, and some will be worth £5. You can use them to pay some of the fare for a one-way journey. You can decide how and when to use them, including using more than one for a single trip – but you must pay at least £1 towards each fare.

Disabled students and staff, even if you are not permanently resident in Cambridge, may be entitled to a Taxicard.

Major changes to the Taxicard scheme came into place in April 2007. It is best to contact the Council directly to find out whether or not you are eligible.
