Support for residents who are clinically extremely vulnerable
Financial support, including if you’re self-isolating
To support Taxicard members during the pandemic, the London Taxicard scheme has been amended as follows:
• Taxicard drivers can pick up and deliver essential supplies for members e.g. essential items pre-bought online or over the telephone
• Friends and family can travel on a member’s behalf using their Taxicard to pick up and deliver essential supplies
This change will allow Taxicard members to continue to use their subsidised trips during a time when they may not able to travel, in line with recently issued Government and Public Health England guidelines.
To make arrangements for a delivery, or for family/friends to travel on a member’s behalf, call the Taxicard booking line on 020 7763 5001.
At the time of the booking, the cost of the journey will be confirmed and the member contribution will need to be paid by debit or credit card.
