Metro Cab Medical Transportation
|Who can use this option?||
Anyone in Greater Boston.
|How much does it cost?||
The Boston Police Department publishes standard rates for taxis. Tipping is recommended but not required. A tip of one or two dollars is fine, although more is always appreciated–especially for longer trips or excellent service.
|When is this option available?||
This option is available when you need it.
|How far ahead do you need to plan?||
Ideally, you should call 2-3 hours in advance for wheelchair accessible vehicles.
|What accommodations are available?||
Metro Cab offers a limited number of wheelchair accessible vans. Drivers are usually happy to help passengers into and out of vehicles with lifting and stowing packages or bags. An escort/companion is permitted to travel with the passenger at no additional charge. Larger, motorized wheelchairs will need a vehicle with a ramp or lift and can hold the passenger plus 2 or perhaps 3 companions. Smaller vehicles are available for passengers with folding wheelchairs; 1 or 2 additional companions will fit into these vehicles. Some drivers will accept pets in their vehicles, either in or out of carriers. If you would like to travel with your pet, please call ahead and inform the dispatcher.
