The Spireites and Club Taxis are delighted to announce a joint venture which will give 2016/17 season ticket holders peace of mind while on a night out.
The 'Get Home Safe' scheme will launch when season ticket holders collect their new cards in July.
Season ticket holders will be able to call Club Taxis on 01246 222222 - quote 'CFC Get Home Safe' - and on arrival of the taxi, they can hand their season ticket to the driver to cover payment of up to £20.
Club Taxis will then return the card to the Chesterfield FC ticket office within 48 hours and the supporter pays the fare upon collection. The scheme is in place throughout the week to cover any unforeseen emergencies.
Kevin Fitzgerald, Chesterfield's head of commercial & marketing, said: “This is a fantastic initiative. In certain situations, people may not have the means to get home, so it is important for us to be able to help our supporters reach their destination safe and well.”
Club Taxis director Scott Ashmore said: "We are delighted to be able to support the club with this scheme as the safety of our passengers is of paramount importance to us."
In operation in the Chesterfield area since 1975, Club Taxis is the oldest taxi company in the town under the same management.
