Wheelchair Book & Ride launches in Sydney
From 1 March 2021, new taxi booking service, Wheelchair Book & Ride, will replace Zero200 as the Government approved centralised booking service for wheelchair accessible taxis in the Sydney metropolitan area.
The service is funded by Transport for NSW and operated by Spinal Cord Injuries Australia.
Wheelchair Book & Ride makes it easier for wheelchair users who rely on taxis to get around to secure a booking with an accessible vehicle. The service will connect with a pool of taxi operators across Sydney to find customers their next available accessible ride.
Wheelchair Book & Ride is available for taxi bookings and general enquiries 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Bookings can be made by phone or online, with voice recognition software to be introduced in the future.
