The owner of one of Teesside's biggest taxi firms has told BBC Tees they will no longer be picking up disabled passengers after they were told they can't charge extra for what they tell us is a 'specialist service'.
One disabled man recently had to push his wife's wheelchair 3 miles on Boxing Night. The owner of Boro Taxis stated it is not their fault it's the councils.
We need to stop discrimination.
We the undersigned petition to get councils to make taxi-charges the same for able-bodied people as for the disabled and to also help subsidise the specialist taxi fares.
The Help disabled people with a fair taxi service petition to Local Councils, MPs was written by Fair taxi services and is in the category Miscellaneous at GoPetition.
