Accessible Uber in Toronto

  • Accessible Uber in Toronto

    Hello,

    I will be heading to Toronto early next year.  I will be staying outside of the city in the countryside, so I need a way to get from Pearson Airport to my destination.

    I assume I could use public transportation to get part of the way, but nothing goes all the way to my destination.

    Does anyone know of an accessible taxi company in Toronto?  Are there accessible Uber vans in Toronto?

    I use a power wheelchair that cannot fold and will be heading to a place about 30 minutes east of Newmarket.

    Hi Josh,

    You are very welcome! This is a great tool! I would love to be able to share the accessible holidays that we promote on our website and other media types. Is this possible at all?

    Cheers!

    Hello,

    I ended up using Aeroport Taxi:

    Let Aeroport Taxi Get You to the Airport in a Wheelchair Accessible Taxi

    I was easily able to get into the accessible van in my electric wheelchair and they drove me to my house (located an hour from the airport).

    However, for the trip back to the airport they called just an hour before pickup and said that they made a “mistake” and tried to charge more because it was “further away than they thought”.  They did back down after I said we had an established contract that they made and agreed to weeks in advance.

    So, they are a company that can help in Toronto, but beware of sudden price changes…
