CICOA Tickets -
If you have "wheelchair tickets" from the Central Indiana Council on Aging, please let us know at the time you call that you will use CICOA tickets.
Across Indianapolis, 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 wide.
Indianapolis Yellow Cab has solicited input from local organizations that work with the mobility challenged community. For example, we work closely with the Central Indiana Council On Aging.
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 Indianapolis.
