The Taxi Discount Program works with Yellow Cab of Indianapolis to provide substantial discounts for taxi services. After filling out a CICOA Transportation Application and receiving your discount coupons, you may call Yellow Cab directly – any hour of the day, seven days a week – to go anywhere you need to go.
How it works: Seniors may receive up to six taxi coupon books (ten, $1.00 coupons per book), per person, per month for a contribution of $5.00 per book (each book’s retail value is $10.00) based on availability.
Yellow Cab taxi services fees are $2.00 per mile plus a $3.00 pick up charge. For example, the approximate cost of a five mile taxi fare would be $13.00 ($2.00 per mile, five miles, plus $3.00 pick up fee equals $13.00). There may also be a modest “wait time fee” of 40 cents per minute if the taxi is caught up in traffic or stopped at traffic lights.
When you use your coupons to pay the driver your cab ride is essentially half price.
Coupons are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
