Wheelchair Taxis in Brussels, Belgium

Brussels Wheelchair TaxiApproximately 10% of taxi cabs in Brussels are wheelchair accessible. These vehicles are equipped with rear-entry ramps that can be folded out and allow a wheelchair to easily roll in and out of the vehicle. This allows the passenger to remain seated in their wheelchair for the entire journey. Each Brussels wheelchair taxi has a securement space and safety tie-downs/straps to accommodate one manual or powered wheelchair.

These specialized taxis can be ordered on demand at all hours, though wait times will be higher late at night and early in the morning. The standard wait time for a wheelchair taxi inside the city is 15-20 minutes, though you can often hail them on the street. Contact information for ordering an accessible cab is provided below:
