The Taxi Access Program or TAP is available to current users of the County TransIT-plus program as a way to supplement their transportation options. Seniors and people with disabilities must be registered with TransIT-plus and been users of the service for at least three months to be eligible for the TAP. Eligible users can receive an allotment of taxi fare per month.
Zone A users (zip codes 21701, 21702, 21703) will be eligible to receive $60 in taxi fare per month for $10. All other zip codes are Zone B and those residents will be eligible to receive $120 in taxi fare per month for $20. Beginning in 2019, TAP customers now have the option to pay monthly fare in two smaller payments up to twice a month.
Customers’ fares will be applied to a re-loadable credit card style swipe card with their photo ID on it. The card will be swiped by participating taxi companies to pay the fare. For more information on taxi cab rates, please reference the Frederick County Taxi Rates sheet.
