Taxi Saver Program

The Taxi Saver Program provides registered handyDART clients with greater convenience for spontaneous travel when handyDART cannot accommodate their travel needs.

How it Works

Taxi Saver provides a 50% subsidy towards the cost of taxi rides. Eligible individuals can purchase a $80 package of Taxi Saver coupons at a cost of $40. This package can be purchased once every month. The coupons come in denominations of $1, $2 and $5.

The handyDART client uses the coupons to pay the dollar meter rate of taxi fare. For example, if a taxi fare is $5.80, the passenger pays $5.00 in coupons and 80 cents in change. (Taxi drivers do not give change on Taxi Saver coupons.)

Eligibility

You need to be 16 years of age or older, and you need a handyPASS to buy and use Taxi Saver coupons. handyPASS eligibility is based on what type of disability you have, and how it prevents you from using conventional public transit.

Call Vernon Regional handyDART at 250-549-1366 to inquire about obtaining a handyPASS. Once you have received your handyPASS you can purchase your Taxi Saver coupons at Vernon Regional Transit at 4210-24th Avenue in Vernon.
