Taxi Subsidy Program
The Village’s Taxi Subsidy Program is open to Deerfield residents aged 65 and older and/or to those with documented disabilities. Registered participants are provided with up to 50 one-way coupons each month. When a coupon is provided, in-town trips cost the rider only $1. For out of town trips beginning or ending in Deerfield, presenting a coupon will take $5 off of the metered fare. Trips to/from the airport are no longer covered by the Taxi Subsidy Program.
