The City of Edinburgh Council is pleased to be working exclusively in partnership with Central Taxis, Edinburgh’s largest taxi company, to deliver the important Taxicard service.

Central Taxis offer a full range of vehicles to Taxicard users with wheelchair accessible five and six seater taxis as well as a new fleet of electric saloon vehicles to meet all mobility requirements.

The Taxicard service will continue to be managed by the Council to ensure that the needs of all users are met and a dedicated team will manage the scheme.

Central Taxis drivers and dispatch teams are experienced in providing a service to Taxicard users. Central Taxis will meet all your journey requirements and using one service provider will ensure that everyone will benefit from the same high levels of service, standards and expertise.

In addition our drivers all complete modules in, Wheelchair Access and Disability Awareness, First Aid Assistance and Customer Care.
