Taxi Saver Coupons
Taxi Saver Coupons are sold in sheets of $1, $2 and $5 denominations. Each coupons is hole-punched to denote its denomination. One hole is for $1, two holes side-by-side are for $2 and two holes separated are for $5.
Each sheet is worth $80 of Taxi Saver Coupons; but the customer pays only $40 per sheet. Customers may buy one sheet every month.

Using Taxi Saver Coupons
Use your Taxi Saver Coupons to pay the dollar amount of the taxi meter fare, and coin to pay anything that is not a whole dollar amount. For example, if the taxi fare is $5.80, you would pay $5.00 using Coupons and 80¢ in change.
Give the taxi driver your Taxi Saver Coupons (and change if the amount is over and even dollar figure) and show your handyPASS.
