The Taxicard provides reduced fares in licensed London taxis and private hires vehicles, for people who have a long term or permanent illness or disability, which prevents them from using or significantly limits their use of public transport.

Due to coronavirus (Covid-19), we are making changes to our Taxi Card Scheme. Taxi Card drivers can pick up and deliver essential supplies for you; and friends and family will be allowed to travel on your behalf using your Taxi Card for the same purpose. Essentials in this instance are food and medicine only.
