Cambridge Taxi Discount Coupon Program

Human Service Programs

Taxi discount coupons, funded by the City of Cambridge, are offered free of charge to Cambridge seniors and residents with disabilities.

Passengers must register in advance for the program by contacting the Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities (CCPD) if under the age of 60 and providing documentation of disability and proof of Cambridge residency; or by contacting the Council on Aging (COA) if age 60 or older. Coupons are issued in books of 10; each coupon is worth $2.50.  The passenger may use one coupon for fares under $7 and a maximum of two coupons for a $5 discount for one-way fares of $7 or more.

The coupons are valid for use only with taxicabs that are licensed by the City of Cambridge.  For information on registration for the Coupon Program, contact CCPD at 617-349-4692 or the COA at 617-349-6220.

Additional Information

Wheelchair-accessible taxicabs are now available for use by Cambridge residents and visitors.

These taxicabs serve the general public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Priority service is given to elderly and disabled passengers. Cambridge accessible taxicabs operate as any other Cambridge taxi: they have the same meter rates, may be flagged down on the street, boarded at a taxi stand, or contacted by telephone.

For an accessible Cambridge taxicab, call Accessible Cambridge Taxi (ACT) at 1-888-872-6721.

ACT staff handle dispatching for the City's seven accessible taxicabs.
