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.
Current Scrip participants who have an ID card can purchase Scrip books over-the-phone using a credit card by calling (208) 608-7580 or in person at the Dick Eardley Boise Senior Center (using cash, check or a credit card) on the specified days/times. There will be an additional fee for postage if we mail the books to you. 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.
The City of Boise is not responsible for lost or stolen Scrip vouchers.
