Sub­sidised taxi deal

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

A TAXI firm is to pro­vide a sub­sidised ser­vice for older peo­ple to help them get to med­i­cal cen­tres.

Ger­rards Cross Parish Coun­cil has an­nounced the part­ner­ship with As­pire Ex­ec­u­tive Taxis, in Sta­tion Ap­proach.

The company will help pro­vide the coun­cil’s con­ces­sion­ary taxi fare scheme, set up 10 years ago to help peo­ple in the vil­lage aged over 60 who strug­gle to get to hos­pi­tals fa­cil­i­ties.

The scheme al­lows about 50 per cent of the fare to be claimed back.

Parish coun­cil chair­man Chris Brown said: “We are de­lighted that As­pire have agreed to take on pro­vid­ing this valu­able ser­vice for our res­i­dents and look for­ward to work­ing with them.”
