Accessible taxis

In line with the Equality Act 2010, if you hire a designated taxi as a wheelchair user, you can expect the driver:

  • to carry you while in your wheelchair
  • not to make any additional charge for doing so
  • to carry your wheelchair, if you choose to sit in a passenger seat
  • to carry you safely and in reasonable comfort

The driver should also provide mobility assistance if needed:

  • to enable you to get into or out of the vehicle
  • to enable you to get into and out of the vehicle while in your wheelchair if you want to travel in your wheelchair
  • to load your luggage into or out of the vehicle
  • to load your wheelchair into or out of the vehicle if you don't want to remain in the wheelchair

It is also worth noting that a driver of a designated taxi or designated private hire vehicle commits an offence by failing to comply with a duty imposed on the driver by this section.
