July 11, 2016
Goa's first wheelchair-friendly taxi will launch on 15 August, making it easier for persons with disabilities and senior citizens to leave their homes and travel with ease.
Both tourists and locals can use the taxi service.
The service has been launched by Umoja, an online travel site, that helps persons with disabilities to get out of their houses.
The taxi will be able to accommodate the wheelchair user, one driver and three passengers along with luggage. A ramp will be fitted on its side which can be lowered to allow wheelchair users easy access to the vehicle.
