DataCab is incredibly proud of its association with London Taxicard which has spanned 25 successful years; DataCab operates within all of the London boroughs – offering a reliable, professional and trustworthy service to Taxicard holders across London.
What is Taxicard?
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, for example going shopping, visiting friends and family, and going out to events.
Taxicard enables over 100,000 members to take around 1.5 million trips per year.
The scheme is paid for by your local council and Transport for London. It is administered on their behalf by London Councils, with CityFleet as the contractor providing Computer Cab Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles.
Your Taxicard can be used 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year – subject to the availability of a vehicle.
