diamond-cab-logoAbout Diamond Cab (HK) Ltd.: Diamond Cab (HK) Ltd. is a private enterprise offering point-to-point transportation services for wheelchair users. They have 7 barrier-free cabs that allow wheelchair users to board directly and provides a legal and safe transportation means for wheelchair users and their carers. Up to mid-April 2016, Diamond Cab has successfully completed over 100,000 barrier-free trips.

As the Diamond Cab brand gains publicity, Diamond Cab has encountered passengers with various backgrounds and medical conditions. In order to effectively provide safe transportation, and to allow more wheelchair users to benefit from their services, they ask passengers with individual/special requests to explain their needs in details at the time of booking. Diamond Cab hopes enterprises with a social purpose that do not accept any government or public funding can continue to operate and thrive to provide needy wheelchair passengers with the Diamond Cab experience.
