We offer several options to facilitate transportation for our members.
- Rides around Town and Beyond
We can arrange private and insured drivers. There is an hourly rate for BHV drivers and additional mileage fees for travel outside of the city limits. BHV can also arrange transportation with local cab companies or private car services.
NOTE: We are not able to book travel outside of the state.
Please call the office to request transportation as much in advance as possible;
preferred lead time is at least one week prior to the date of your ride. If your plans change and you need to cancel or reschedule
- Free Ride Home from Medical Procedure (DPR)
Membership includes three “Doctor Prescribed Rides” (DPR) per calendar year at no cost to you. A BHV driver will bring you home after a medical procedure when the physician or hospital requires an escort. Call the office to schedule in advance.
Taxi coupons are available for Boston residents over the age of 65 and provide a 50% discount for taxi rides ($5 for a $10 coupon book). The City of Boston limits each person to two booklets per month.
Taxi coupons may be purchased at the Beacon Hill Village office at 74 Joy Street on the second Friday of each month from 11-12 PM. For more information, call 617-723-9713 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to visit a location where taxi coupons are distributed due to health or mobility issues and you obtain a letter from your physician to that effect, we can mail taxi coupons to you.
Coupons are also available for purchase at other locations, including Monday-Friday at Boston City Hall. Please call the BHV village or City Hall (617-635-4366) for locations that may be more convenient for you.
