Accessible Taxis

Did you know the city of Vaughan was the first municipality in York Region to provide a wheelchair accessible taxi service at a meter rate?


This allows people with disabilities in Vaughan, the Township of King and the City of Markham to take a taxi on demand and pay the same rate of a non-accessible service.

Our hope is for this taxi service to serve all of York Region.

The accessible taxi can accommodate a passenger in a wheelchair or scooter as well as other passengers. It also allows a person in a wheelchair or scooter to hook into retractors that provide safe and easy entry into the vehicle.


The driver assists those with manual wheelchairs to get into and out of the taxi. Seatbelts are installed throughout the taxi to ensure the wheelchair is strapped in securely.


All accessibility taxi drivers are trained on how to provide accessible customer service to people with disabilities, as required by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
