The city of Phoenix provides alternative transportation for people with disabilities and senior citizens through its taxicab subsidy programs. Taxicab programs allow more flexibility for senior and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) passengers, allowing them to plan trips based on their schedule.
There are various programs available to passengers:
ADA Cab - ADA Cab provides taxi vouchers for people with disabilities to travel wherever they choose. Participants must be Phoenix residents and ADA-certified to participate. There is no age restriction on this program.
Senior Cab - The Senior Cab program provides taxi vouchers for Phoenix residents age 65 and older, to travel wherever they choose.
Senior Center Shuttle - This program takes the place of Reserve-a-Ride. It provides members of Phoenix's senior centers flexible transportation through the use of taxi service between their personal residence and their nearest senior center during operating hours. Passengers should sign up for the service at their senior center.
Work Trip - Work trip vouchers support travel to and from jobs for people with disabilities. The origin and destination is pre-printed on the voucher and travel times are set in advance.
Dialysis Trip - Dialysis trip vouchers support travel to and from medical centers for ongoing dialysis treatment.
