Scrip Taxi Program

Beginning October 1st, the Scrip Taxi Program will transition from the City of Boise to Valley Regional Transit.  Any new customers interested in this program should contact Valley Regional Transit at (208) 345-7433.

The Scrip Taxi Program is a subsidized taxi program available to those age 15 years and older who have a permanent disability which inhibits their ability to drive a vehicle. Those who wish to utilize this service must live within the Boise city limits and they will receive a 50% discount on taxi services to help meet their transportation needs.

Current Scrip participants who have an ID card can purchase Scrip books a variety of ways:

  • in person at Main Street Station 777 W Main Street Boise, Idaho 83702 (credit/debit cards only)
  • over-the-phone using a credit/debit card by calling (208) 345-7433
  • by mailing in a check to Valley Regional Transit at 700 NE 2nd Street, Ste 100, Meridian, Idaho 83642
  • in person at Valley Regional Transit at 700 NE 2nd Street, Suite 100, Meridian, Idaho 83642 (cash, checks, credit/debit card)

How Does It Work?

Each Scrip voucher is valued at $2 and the vouchers come in books of 10. Each book costs an individual $10 and is good for $20 worth of rides. Individuals can buy up to six books of taxi Scrip each month for a total of $60 which provides $120 worth of rides. Scrip books may be purchased in increments of $10 ($10 minimum and $60 maximum/month). Participants may buy their vouchers only once per month (i.e. if someone only wishes to purchase one book, they must wait until the next month to purchase additional books).

If desired, individuals may purchase two consecutive months’ worth (the month we are currently in and the next month) of Scrip vouchers at a time ($120 for $240 worth of rides). The current month’s allotment must be purchased in order to purchase the next month. If a participant purchases two months’ worth, they cannot purchase another taxi Scrip book until those two months are over. For example, if someone buys vouchers in October, they can also purchase their November vouchers at that time. However, they will not be eligible to purchase more vouchers until December.

ABC Taxi and Boise City Taxi accept taxi Scrip vouchers. At the end of your taxi trip, participants pay the driver the meter fare using taxi Scrip vouchers instead of money. The taxi driver is not allowed to give change for a Scrip voucher. Participants do not need to use the Scrip vouchers the same month they buy them; however, please note that unused Scrip vouchers cannot be returned for a refund. Scrip vouchers can only be used by individuals who have the Scrip ID and are non-transferable.
