New Rights for Wheelchair Users to access Taxi Services

From 6 April 2017 drivers of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) will be liable for a fine of up to £1,000 if they refuse to carry the passenger in their chair, fail (unless they have an official exemption) to provide assistance, such as deploying the ramp and helping to push them into the vehicle, or charge extra for carrying a passenger who uses a wheelchair.
