Taxicard information

Dundee City Council - Taxicard Travel Concession Scheme
The Taxicard scheme is a local concessionary travel scheme, which is designed for residents of Dundee City who have a permanent disability and have difficulty using the ordinary local bus services within the city. The scheme was first introduced in January 1992 by Tayside Regional Council and has been continued by Dundee City Council since 1996.

The Taxicard scheme offers discounted taxi fares where the Taxicard holder pays half the total metered fare up to a maximum concession of £2.00 per individual taxi journey. The maximum number of concessionary taxi journeys permitted within a twelve-month period is limited to 104 trips (an average of two individual journeys per week).

To qualify for the Taxicard concession scheme the applicant must be permanently resident within the boundaries of Dundee City and be five years of age or over and satisfy one of the following:

Taxicard Eligibility - Automatic Entitlement

  • Be in receipt of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance at the higher rate and be a wheelchair user.
  • Be in receipt of Attendance Allowance at the higher rate.
  • Be registered blind with the local society.

Taxicard Eligibility - through Assessment

  • Be in receipt of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) at the higher rate.
  • Be in receipt of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) at the enhanced rate.
  • Be in receipt of Attendance Allowance at the lower rate.
  • Be registered as Partially Sighted with the local society.
  • Be in receipt of War Pensioners Mobility Supplement.

All applications which require assessment are forwarded to the independent Medical Advisory Service (NHS Tayside) who may contact the applicant's family doctor for a report on their medical condition. An assessment is then carried out on the applicant's ability to use ordinary local bus services within the city.
Application forms can be obtained by contacting the Customer Services Section on Dundee (01382) 433558.
