Some states offer taxi assistance programs for senior citizens who are residents of the state and have a qualifying income. Taxi assistance programs sometimes also provide discounted fares for passengers of any age who have a permanent disability.
Taxi assistance programs often provide coupon booklets offering discounted fairs to senior citizens. Senior citizens have to buy the coupon books, with the cost of the book determined by the person's income. The state might also limit the number of books a senior citizen is allowed to buy each month. Before having access to an assistance program, a senior citizen may be required to register with the state.
