WATCH: Sliema Local Council Launches Free Taxi Service For The Elderly
Targeting those without means of transportation or with mobility issues
The Council Cab, which launched yesterday by the Sliema local council, is a free taxi service targeting elderly people in the area who either don't have means of transportation, are physically unable to get by, or have mobility issues.
The service was inaugurated by Anthony Chircop (the mayor of Sliema) and supported by Charles Borg, CEO of PG Group (operators of PAVI Shopping Complex & PAMA Shopping Village, Mosta).
“We expect that most of those who will make use of this service are pensioners and elderly people," Chircop said. "The Council Cab will take the targeted clients to any place they want within the locality up to the Gzira policlinic, free of charge, be it to attend a visit with their GP, go to shops and any other day-to-day errand."
The service runs Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 12:30am.
Residents can book the Council Cab by calling the Sliema Local Council on 21337633 with their preferred date and time.
