South Florida county using taxis to save taxpayer dollars

There’s a faster, more convenient and cheaper way for people needing Broward County’s special transportation shuttles to get around.

It’s called a taxi.

A yearlong, limited pilot program let participants take taxi rides paid for by the county instead of using the county’s paratransit shuttle service.

The county has been paying up to $15 for each taxi trip in the Rider’s Choice program. Commissioners will consider March 28 increasing the maximum to $18.
