Taxi Saver Program
You've got places to go
The Taxi Saver Program is intended to help local seniors and residents with disabilities greater convenience for spontaneous travel throughout Mackenzie.
You are eligible for a HandyPass if you meet the following criteria:
- you are 18 years of age or older and have a physical or mental disability, or
- if you are over 65.
For a disability HandyPass you will be asked to have this form signed by your physician or provide proof (e.g. disability cheque stub) that you are receiving assistance for, and have met the criteria of, a person with disabilities as defined under the Employment and Assistance for Persons with Disabilities Act, and met the BCTransit HandyDart criteria.
How it Works
The Taxi Saver Program provides a 50% subsidy towards the cost of taxi rides. Eligible individuals purchase $60 worth of Taxi Saver coupons for $30. The purchaser uses the coupons to pay the dollar meter rate of taxi fare.
Taxi Saver coupons may be purchased during regular business hours at the Municipal Office.
Your HandyPass is not transferable to other individuals or other transit systems.
The pass must be presented to the cab driver when paying the fare.
