Call our taxi dispatch line at 850-433-3333 any time, any day. Just remember to tell us you require a wheelchair-accessible taxi.
Across Pensacola, people who use wheelchairs and are physically capable of using curb-to-curb taxicab transportation are enjoying the simple pleasure of getting where they want to go.
Our studies show that there is a sizable population of mobility challenged people who need curb-to-curb taxi service. They dont need the more involved and more expensive paratransit service required by people with more complicated health concerns and mobility challenges. These people have not been getting the service they need in many cities. Wheelchair-accessible taxis expand their options so they can have their transportation needs met without having to pay for additional services they dont need.
The wheelchair-accessible taxis currently in use are Ford Windstar minivans. Any rider will appreciate the vehicles’ comfort and attractive appearance. However, these vans also have special-use capabilities. They meet ADA standards and can accommodate wheelchairs and scooters up to 31-inches wide.
Yellow Cab of Pensacola has solicited input from local organizations that work with the mobility challenged community. There will always be a need for specialized transportation providers for those with greater mobility challenges and health concerns. The wheelchair-accessible taxi service isnt for every rider, but it is a great service for those who can take advantage of it.
We take pride in bringing wheelchair-accessible taxi service to the people of Greater Pensacola.
