Taxi Access Program (TAP)


The Taxi Access Program (TAP) is a supplemental transportation option for people who are eligible for the Transit Plus program. This service is available on weekdays and weekends within Frederick County, based on taxi availability. 



TAP eligibility:

  •  Seniors 60+ and people with disabilities 
  •  Must be registered with Transit-plus
  •  Eligible users have scheduled or attempted to schedule three Transit Plus rides over the course of a month 


How it works:

  • Eligible users will receive an allotment of taxi funds monthly, based on home zip code.
