Survey launched for accessible taxi-style service
The Halifax Regional Municipality is inviting residents to participate in a survey regarding an accessible taxi-style service.
On Feb. 23, 2021, Regional Council gave approval to contract for a private, on-demand accessible taxi service. Under this new program, the municipality will pay a fee to the contracted company to provide an accessible taxi-style service, while users will pay the standard taxi rate for trips.
Feedback from this survey, along with stakeholder engagement, will be used to create a framework for how this service will operate.
The survey is open until Friday, Aug. 13.
