A Cabs for Jabs scheme has been launched in Brighton

Brighton and Hove Streamline Taxis and Brighton and Hove Radio Cabs are currently working together to raise funds to provide over 1000 Free cab rides for those in our community who cannot afford to pay to travel for their Covid - 19 vaccinations.

The scheme aims to help vulnerable residents who need a lift to get to their vaccine appointment. 

It comes as some people are concerned about using public transport, exposing themselves to more people than they would in a taxi. Therefore, they want to make it safer for those who are more vulnerable and the elderly to travel alone or with one other person from their household or bubble.

Streamline and Radio Cabs say they are not in a position to offer this service for free as drivers are already working on a much lower income due to the pandemic.

They hope that by raising funds those eligible for the vaccine will be more likely to attend their appointments and not have to worry about the cost of getting there and back.

However, they say they do hope that only those in genuine need of financial help will take advantage of this offer. 

If you want to book a free cab to get to your Covid Appointment please call  01273202020  or 01273204060

Brighton and Hove Cabs for Jabs fundraising team will only use your donation to pay for taxi fares for Brighton and Hove older and vulnerable residents who require assistance getting to and from their Covid vaccination appointment only.
