Taxi’s are an essential service transporting people.
Wheelchair persons (others) use Maxi Taxi Services to assist with personal transport, mobility equipment, scooters, beds, large families, groups, luggage & airport transfers.
Governments/Government should consider new driver license training for Maxi Taxi Services & community service van drivers who also transport wheelchairs. This large fleet could cater for the ageing population, wheelchair persons and persons with medical issues.
Vehicle fit outs would also require a new standard to meet licensing.
This is the transport keystone for independent living to happen!
Maxi Taxi Service & community service vans with new accredited driver training coordinated could act as a soft ambulance transport hub for the needy.
Governments should realize that a well connected Maxi Taxi Service that included community service vans will be a win win for government and the public yet independently owned and operated.
