The Department of For-Hire Vehicles (DFHV) is pleased to announce the launch of the Union Station Fast Pass pilot program. Each month a selected group of taxi drivers that operate wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) will be issued a Fast Pass which will allow them special entry to the front of the taxi line at the Union Station. This program is scheduled to run through May, 2020.
The Union Station Fast Pass is part of the DFHV efforts to make WAVs more accessible. Currently, 280 WAVs are available and provide an average of 36,000 rides per month. This program also seeks to provide additional income opportunities for taxi drivers.
To receive the Union Station Fast Pass, a driver must be a top performer in the Transport DC Program, providing substantial trips to wheelchair users. Other evaluation factors include rides completed on the weekends, rides completed at night time, and rides completed East of the River. Eligibility criteria is posted below.
