Wheelchair Accessible Cab (WAC) Service
In 2003, the County passed an ordinance implementing a wheelchair accessible taxicab program. The law established a goal of having at least 3% of all taxicabs being wheelchair accessible. Currently, there are 80 such taxicabs, amounting to 3.8% of all cabs.
All Wheelchair accessible cabs are modified and equipped to facilitate the transportation of wheelchairs and other vehicles used by persons with mobility impairments. Additionally, drivers are trained and certified in the safe and proper methods of securing and transporting passengers who use wheelchairs.
As of June 1, 2010, all wheelchair taxicabs are required to have a mobile two-way radio or electronic dispatch system and be connected to a company that has a fixed-base call center operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
