Sharing Taxi Experiences

Sharing Taxi Experiences

If you are a taxi user ( and more people probably are these days )and have any recent experiences you would like to share then please get in touch with us at Disability Sheffield. Also do you have views on whether wheelchair accessible rear loading taxis would be a good or a bad thing?

Sharing your experiences will help support work both on existing taxi issues already reported and on responses to the Clean Air Zone proposals which require many taxi drivers to change or upgrade their vehicles. This could reduce the number of accessible vehicles in Sheffield and gain clarity on whether the “side loading only” policy for Hackney Carriages should remain. (Hackney Carriages are taxis that run from taxi ranks and you can hail on-street and currently a 100% wheelchair accessible policy is in place).

We’d love to hear from you so do get in touch with James Martin our Engagement, Communications and Policy Officer at james.martin@disabilitysheffield.org.uk with your thoughts.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
