Taxi Saver Program

The Taxi Saver Program provides registered handyDART clients with greater convenience for spontaneous travel when handyDART cannot accommodate their travel needs.

How it Works

Taxi Saver provides a 50% subsidy towards the cost of taxi rides. Eligible individuals can purchase a $80 package of Taxi Saver coupons at a cost of $40. This package can be purchased once every month. The coupons come in denominations of $1, $2 and $5.

The handyDART client uses the coupons to pay the dollar meter rate of taxi fare. For example, if a taxi fare is $5.80, the passenger pays $5.00 in coupons and .80¢ in change. (Taxi drivers do not give change on Taxi Saver coupons.)

Eligibility

You need a handyPASS to buy and use Taxi Saver coupons. handyPASS eligibility is based on what type of disability you have, and how it prevents you from using conventional public transit.
