Free Cabs to get your Jabs

23rd February 2022

Sheffield City Council have teamed up with City Taxis to provide FREE journeys to and from Covid-19 vaccination/booster appointments or walk ins* 

The new “Jab Cab” scheme is SCC’s latest pledge to encourage and support those wanting to get vaccinated. Free taxis will be available to all Sheffield** residents travelling to and from the Longley Lane Vaccination Centre, making it easier to get their first or second dose and booster jab.

To take advantage of the scheme, local residents can book their free taxi by calling City Taxis on 0114 235 8997 and quoting ‘SCC Vaccine’. 

Arnie Singh, Managing Director of City Taxis, said:

“We are really excited to be working with Sheffield City Council on the Jab Cab project. The scheme will support those who would like to be vaccinated but currently aren’t able to travel to a vaccination centre, whether that be accessibility issues or affordability of transport.”

Jab Cabs are only available for bookings to or from the Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre, Longley Lane, Sheffield, S6 7JN. The centre is open 7 days a week, 8am – 7pm, and accepts both appointments and walk-ins*.
