The program provides curb-to-curb, round-the-clock taxi service for patrons of the Torrance Community Transit Program (TCTP).

To be eligible, people must register for the service and present proof of age and/or residency; tickets must be purchased in advance. After being approved, they may call the reservation number at any time to request a taxi, which will arrive within 25 minutes.

Patrons may purchase a maximum of 12 tickets once a month. Riders fill in the information asked for on the ticket for each trip they take. Tickets may only be used by the person who purchased them. Riders are asked to call to request a taxi at least 25 minutes before the desired pick up time. They give the dispatcher their name, the pick up address, phone number, the address of the destination, and state whether they are a Senior Taxi or Dial-A-Taxi patron. Patrons may be accompanied by another attendant. APPLICATION PROCEDURE To register for the program, residents may go to the West Annex Transit Center located at 3031 Torrance Blvd., Torrance, 90503.
