Through the generosity of the Adele Cahn Catch-a-Cab Designated Fund at the Jewish Endowment Foundation, the Catch-a-Cab program is designed to supplement the cost of transportation for members of the Jewish community who are 65 years of age or older. Participants receive discounted coupons for use with local taxi companies: Metry Cab Company, NOLA-MED Dispatch, Incognito Transportation Services, and United Cab.
Clients use these coupons for transportation to everything from grocery shopping and doctors’ appointments to temple services or even to a friend’s home for a visit. The coupons provide much-needed assistance to older adults who are no longer driving their own cars. The coupons can be used along, or in combination with cash to help lower the cost of transportation.
For $5, Jewish seniors receive a $20 book of taxi coupons, with a limit of 7 coupon books per quarter. The registration process is simple, with one short form to fill out and only one proof of age to submit. The coupons are only valid for Catch-a-Cab subscribers.
