Valley Cab is pleased to offer curb-to-curb taxi service to the mobility impaired community. The men and women who drive our wheelchair-accessible vans are independent contractors, each driver is certified annually. Drivers who choose to drive one of these vehicles participate in a Passenger Assistance Orientation session to better serve customers who can take advantage of this service.
Across Connecticut, 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 don’t need the more involved and more expensive Para transit 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 don’t need.
The wheelchair-accessible taxis currently in use are Ford Transit Connect and Dodge Grand Caravan 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 up to 30” and certain models can accommodate up to 34" wide.
There will always be a need for specialized transportation providers for those with greater mobility challenges and health concerns. The wheelchair-accessible taxi service isn’t 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 in Connecticut.
