Five taxi companies operating in Minneapolis have agreed to offer wheelchair-accessible service 24 hours a day, in exchange for reduced license fees. The incentive fund was created by collecting an annual license surcharge from all other cab companies and ride-sharing services, including Uber and Lyft, that do not provide accessible services.
"It's important that all residents know they can rely on services when they need them, and I thank these participating taxicab companies for recognizing the importance of serving the entire community," said Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges.
Participating taxi companies
Airport Taxi (7 wheelchair accessible vehicles)
Yellow Taxi (7 wheelchair accessible vehicles)
Green and White Taxi (6 wheelchair accessible vehicles)
Minneapple Taxi (2 wheelchair accessible vehicles)
La Mexicana Taxicab (1 wheelchair accessible vehicle)
All of the participating taxis are compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations and charge the same fare as all other cabs.
