To my knowledge, there are currently no wheelchair accessible taxi cabs in Berlin with the ability to transport a powered wheelchair or scooter. Lighter weight, collapsible scooters can be carried in standard/larger taxi models if the disabled traveler can transfer to the taxi’s seat. No wheelchair taxi vans with ramps are presently available in Berlin.
I have asked numerous hotel concierge personnel and consulted with airport staff. No wheelchair accessible vehicles or private transportation options were discovered.
Disabled travelers in Berlin will need to rely on the city’s public transportation system, which provides accessible transportation within the city and to both of the city’s airports. It is also possible to rent a standard minivan with stowaway seating and utilize a personal ramp (brought by the traveler). Manual wheelchair users who can transfer into a taxi may hail any cab and the driver will store the folded-up wheelchair in the trunk or back seat. Contact information for several taxi companies in Berlin is provided below.
