No. The operation of concessionary travel schemes (including schemes for taxis) is a matter for individual local authorities, based on local needs and circumstances. As part of their concessionary travel schemes, a number of local authorities provide taxicard initiatives which offer reduced taxi fares to provide mobility for those unable to use conventional public transport.
