There are taxi companies in and around Sheffield that provide cars or minibuses for those with a disability.  

This page has some advice about travelling as a disabled passenger.  It also gives a list of transport providers.  These are on the Sheffield City Council transport contract.

What the law says about taking a taxi if you have a disability

It’s against the law for drivers not to take you on a journey because of a disability or for bringing an assistance dog. It’s also against the law for taxi and minicab operators not to book a vehicle for you for those reasons.  They are not allowed to charge a wheelchair user more for their journey.

If there are vehicles available and they refuse to take you because of your disability, the driver or operator could be fined up to £1,000 or lose their licence.

You can read more on the government website.  Click on the logo below.

Diasbled people and transport rights

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have made this video.  You may find it useful. It explains what your rights are when using public transport and taxis.

When contacting the taxi company, advise them of your requirements to make sure they have the right taxi available.
