How do I use the taxi coupons?

The taxi coupons are good for Arlington Red Top Cab and Yellow Cab. Each coupon has a cash value. There is no expiration date. You may use the coupon to pay for your taxi fare, companion’s fare, and for the driver’s tip. Coupons may be combined with cash if needed. Drivers cannot give change for coupons. These coupons are not to be used as co-pays for STAR rides. STAR riders may use STAR Fare Coupons for that purpose. To arrange your trip, call the taxi cab company.

What if I use a wheelchair or need assistance?

Call the taxi cab company and request a wheelchair accessible vehicle. There are a limited number of these vehicles, which can be reserved in advance.

Am I restricted to where I can go?

No. You may go where you want to go.
