Within handyDART service, there is a supplementary Taxi Saver program. The Taxi Saver Program offers another transportation option, in Greater Victoria, when handyDART cannot accommodate a customer’s travel request. Many handyDART customers use a combination of fixed-route and handyDART services depending on their travel needs. To qualify for the Taxi Saver program, you must be a permanent handyDART customer, 12 years of age or older, and have a handyPASS.


handyPASS is a photo identification card for permanent handyDART customers. It is used when purchasing Taxi Saver vouchers, taking a taxi ride, and can be used if travelling with an Attendant on fixed-route to allow your Attendant to ride free.

Check the fares page for fixed-route and handyDART fares.

Taxi Saver

When handyDART cannot accommodate your travel needs, you can use the Taxi Saver vouchers for one-time trips. The Taxi Saver vouchers are available to permanently registered handyDART riders only. They provide a 50% subsidy towards the cost of taxi rides. You will need to have a handyPASS to use this program. Open and print this Taxi Saver guide (PDF).

How to Use Taxi Saver Coupons

To book a taxi saver trip, call your local area taxi company directly. Be sure to confirm that the taxi company accepts Taxi Saver vouchers. When you call to book your taxi, tell the dispatcher if you need a wheelchair-accessible vehicle.

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 cents in change. (Taxi drivers do not give change on Taxi Saver coupons.)

Participating Taxi Companies

The following companies participate in the Taxi Saver Program:

*Bluebird Cabs and Sidney Taxi have wheelchair and scooter accessible vehicles. When you call to book your taxi, tell the dispatcher if you need an accessible vehicle.
