Reduced Fare Taxi Program
The Reduced Fare Taxi program is a curb-to-curb demand response service designed to transport residents of Fairfield and Suisun City who are 60 years of age or older. This service operates only in the cities of Fairfield and Suisun City, and nearby unincorporated areas. It is provided through local taxi operators and is available 24-hours a day year-round. Fares are based upon one-half the metered fare at the end of the trip and the metered fare cannot exceed $20.00. Any amount over $20.00 is to be paid by the rider.
If a total fare is $15.00, the City will pay $7.50 and the rider would be responsible for the remaining $7.50. For a fare of $25.00, the City will pay $10.00 (half of $20.00) and the rider would be responsible for the remaining $15.00.
Persons wishing to use Reduced Fare Taxi must first qualify through an application process that evaluates their eligibility based upon age and residency. If eligible, a taxi card is issued to the applicant. Persons wishing to use the Reduced Fare Taxi program must be 60 years of age or older, and reside in Fairfield or Suisun City.
Applications for a Reduced Fare Taxi card are available through the mail by contacting FAST administration at 434-3800, at Fairfield City Hall, or at the Fairfield or Suisun City Senior Centers.
