For disabled people who can’t drive, or have difficulties accessing public transport, taxis can be essential. Unfortunately however, many taxi companies don’t make things easy for their passengers with additional needs, often not having enough space or sufficient accessibility when it comes to their cabs.
If you’re reliant on private hire minicabs, or live further away from the larger cities, accessible cabs can be few and far between. In addition to this, services such as Uber are adding more complications, as they usually don’t allow you to request accessibility requirements from their drivers.
In 2013, “Enable Magazine” reported on the difficulties disabled people face every day with transportation, including the problems with getting taxis. Among those who had used taxis in the past year, 60% of those in wheelchairs and 30% of those who were blind or partially sighted said they experienced problems.
