Taxi Coupon Program

For registered Para Transpo customers

The Taxi Coupon Program allows Para Transpo customers to take discounted taxi service as an alternative to Para Transpo. You can book your trip - at your convenience, with participating Ottawa taxi companies (see below) and save 40% off the regular taxi fare.

If you have any questions or comments about the Taxi Coupon Program, please give us a call at 613-842-3670 / TTY 613-741-5280.


Eligibility


Registered Para Transpo customers are eligible to participate in the Taxi Coupon Program.

About Coupons / Cost


  • The cost is $24 for a coupon book worth $40 in taxi fares.
  • Each book has a selection of $1, $2, and $5 coupons.

An eligible customer can buy up to four coupon books each month.

Coupons are not refundable and lost or stolen coupons will not be reimbursed. Coupons are for the sole use of the Para Transpo customer who buys them. They cannot be resold or given to anyone else. Anyone who abuses this policy will be ineligible to participate in the program.
