Senior Transit

There are a variety of transportation options for Deerfield seniors provided by local government agencies in the Village.

Senior/Disabled Taxi Subsidy Program

The Village’s senior/disabled taxi subsidy program is open to Deerfield residents aged 65 and older and to those with documented disabilities. Registered participants are provided with up to 50 one-way coupons each month that are worth $5. When a coupon is provided, in-town trips cost the rider only $1. For out of town trips, presenting a coupon will take $5 off of the metered fare.

The Village works with American Taxi and 303 Taxi.
