The Town of Okotoks wishes to ensure that Okotoks residents who are seniors (60 years of age and over) and persons with disabilities are able to remain active participants in the community. A subsidy is provided to a contracted taxi company for each trip taken and provides users with a reduced taxi fare.

  2. Visit the Okotoks Municipal Centre, 5 Elizabeth St. to receive an application form; or

2013/2014 Information & Fare Rates
The Town of Okotoks pays the balance of your fare, according to the 2013-2014 agreement with the TOWN TAXI company.
 
Additional Information

Taxi users who qualify for this reduced rate must have a current Community Access Program Identification card. Taxi users show their card to the driver and sign a receipt at the end of each trip.

The Community Access Program has a limited budget and is not funded sufficiently to provide daily trips for everyone. Cardholders will be notified if trips are approaching the maximum allowed. Trips to the airport are not eligible for this program.
