Wheelchair accessible taxis are available to tourists in Moscow through the private firm Invataxi. The company was founded by a wheelchair using Muscovite. Invataxi’s wheelchair accessible vehicles permit a passenger to roll-in to the van via an extended ramp or with the assistance of an electronic lift. This allows the wheelchair user to remain seated in their wheelchair for the entire journey. Each accessible taxi has securement space for one manual or powered wheelchair with safety tie downs/straps.
Currently listed prices for Invataxi are 600 Rubles per hour. However, due to the falling value of Russia’s currency and the weight of international sanctions, prices may be higher. When reserving a ride through Invataxi, request a quote in advance. The service is available daily between 9 a.m and 11 p.m. Contact information for the accessible taxi service in Moscow is provided below:

It is strongly recommended that wheelchair taxis be reserved at least one day in advance due to their limited number. For pick-ups upon arrival at the airport, it may be best to have your hotel concierge prearrange an accessible taxi for you. A video highlighting the Invataxi service is provided below:
