Wheelchair accessible Taxis At Birmingham Taxis we are proud that our Taxis are wheelchair accessible. Our taxi drivers, too, are externally trained and assessed by Council-approved assessors to ensure they are able to provide the best possible taxi service for disabled people.
Our taxi drivers will assist with wheelchair access and will ensure that wheelchairs are properly and safely secured before setting off on a journey, assisting passengers to disembark at the other end too. Taxi drivers are also trained to help people with moderate walking difficulties, as well as those with impaired vision or hearing Wheelchair accessible Taxis are capable of accommodating passengers with a range of special needs.
Wheelchair ramps are fitted as standard in our taxis, folding down for use and providing a dignified entry for wheelchair users. And once inside the taxi, with the assistance of the trained taxi driver, wheelchair restraint straps ensure that the chair is held firmly in place throughout the journey.
The elderly or those with moderate walking difficulties can make use of the intermediate step and swivel-out seat at the nearside passenger door. Movement inside the passenger compartment is made easier thanks to easy-grip grab handles which are highlighted, along with seat edging, in colour-contrast material to help people with impaired vision. For hearing-aid users, an induction loop is incorporated in the intercom system of all taxis.
