The City of Evanston offers a special low-cost taxicab service to Evanston seniors over the age of 65, and residents with ambulatory disabilities who are registered for the Evanston Benefit Card. The registered taxicab rider uses taxicab coupons in place of cash for each taxicab ride. Taxicab drivers are reimbursed by the City for each validated coupon. Service area includes anywhere in the City of Evanston, Lincolnwood, Skokie and Wilmette, with no in-between stops.
