ALGARVE CAR HIRE - NEWS
Faro with wheelchair-friendly taxis
Faro is the first city in the Algarve to provide a taxi service for people with limited mobility. Two licences have been issued through a public tender launched by the council and the taxis are currently circulating following a timetable defined by the council to guarantee a permanent service in the city and to and from the airport.
With this initiative Faro becomes the first municipality in the Algarve to offer taxi transportation for people with reduced mobility.
The launch of the public tender was approved in a council meeting on 13 July 2011 and has now reached its conclusion.
Two licenses were attributed to adapted taxis which work on a shift basis drawn up by the council to guarantee a permanent service.
Passengers from the international airport of Faro will also be able to benefit from a service that will be essential to the lives of many tourists.”
Tourists who carry an Algarve Pass card will benefit from reductions of around 50 percent on a range of activities promoted by Faro’s municipal swimming pool, the beachside Nautical Centre, Faro Municipal Museum and the Algarve Regional Museum.
