Through the generosity of the Adele Cahn Catch-a-Cab Designated Fund at the Jewish Endowment Foundation, Catch-a-Cab provides transportation to Jewish seniors in the Greater New Orleans area via cab fare subsidization. Qualified clients are given coupons to lower the cost of their cab fare. Clients can use 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 can be used in combination with other forms of payment to help lower the cost of transportation.
Eligible clients are Jewish individuals 65 years or older who live in the Greater New Orleans area. After completing an application, clients receive discounted coupons for use with local taxi companies: Metry Cab Company, NOLA-MED Dispatch (wheelchair accessible vehicles available), Incognito Transportation Services, and United Cab.
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.
