UCSF Health Taxi Voucher Program

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Taxi Voucher Program

Residents and Fellows can now use the YoTaxi SF mobile app to book taxis from ZSFG to their homes. The app will replace the paper taxi vouchers which were previously obtained in the Residents Lounge.

Residents that are eligible for the program should receive a welcome email from Yellow Cab of SF. If residents do not receive this email, they will need to contact their ZSFG Trainee Administrator, who will work with the Dean’s Office at ZSFG to update the list. 

Once residents have downloaded the app and created their own account, they can then begin booking rides! 

Please note:

  • Residents will need to register with the same UCSF email address which received the welcome email. 
  • Residents should also check that they can select UCSF/ZSFG as their payment method for eligible trips so that they do not incur these charges.
