Tandridge District Council supports and encourages all licenced taxi drivers to pay particular regard to the needs of the travelling public. Drivers should provide assistance to people in wheelchairs, carry them in safety and not charge extra for doing so. Tandridge licensed taxi drivers will carry guide, hearing and other prescribed assistance dogs in their taxis without additional charge. Drivers who have a medical condition which is aggravated by exposure to dogs will display an exemption badge on their windscreen.
Wheelchair accessible vehicles can be pre-booked by some of the private hire operators and taxi proprietors. The main private hire licensed operators in Tandridge that may be able to provide wheelchair accessible vehicles can be contacted on the following numbers:
