The Emergency Taxi fund, funded by the AMS, was created for students with temporary mobility impairments, who require taxi assistance to and from campus and classes. The AMS financially supports a number of accessibility programs for students. As a result the amount of funding for the Emergency Taxi fund is limited.
The amount of funding for the 2013-2014 academic year has been fully granted. The Emergency Taxi fund program will not be available for the remainder of the 2013-14 academic year.
In the case of an emergency when immediate assistance is required, students should contact the Student Awards Office directly.
If you are having a temporary cash flow difficulty (e.g. your government student assistance funding is not arriving until mid-September, however you require funds now to buy books), you may wish to considered applying for a Short Term Loan. Students with temporary cash flow difficulties will not be considered for Emergency Assistance.
