The TaxiSCRIP program offers increased travel opportunities for MobilityPLUS customers who live and travel in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. MobilityPLUS registrants who reside in these areas are able to purchase TaxiSCRIP which allows them to travel to and from their destination via a taxi. TaxiSCRIP books have coupons that represent a cash value. The cash value of every book $60, however a MobilityPLUS registrant can purchase one TaxiSCRIP book for $30. When a taxi is called and arrives at the scheduled pick-up location, a MobilityPLUS customer can pay for their ride using the coupons in the TaxiSCRIP book. TaxiSCRIP cannot be used for travel within the townships and registrants on MobilityPLUS North Dumfries or Kiwanis Transit services are not eligible for TaxiSCRIP.
TaxiSCRIP is for the personal use of the MobilityPLUS registrant. Coupons cannot be resold or transferred to anyone else. Proven abuse of this policy will result in TaxiSCRIP privileges being revoked. Lost or stolen TaxiSCRIP coupons will not be reimbursed.
