The Bantams have brought the veteran midfielder to Valley Parade on a short-term deal.
The 32-year-old was a free agent after leaving Blackpool at the end of last season and has also played for Oldham, Millwall, Blackburn and Bolton over his career.
The move sees Taylor - who has penned a contract until January - reunited with Bradford manager Gary Bowyer, who he played under at both Blackburn and Blackpool.
According to the Telegraph & Argus, Taylor was with the Bantams in pre-season and featured in a couple of friendlies, including the home clash with Liverpool.
"Chris comes in at a good time for us, after injuries for Matty Palmer, Jamie Devitt and Jordan Gibson," Bowyer told the Bradford website.
"He gives us more options, as he can play anywhere in midfield and just off the front. Chris will bring a wealth of experience and provides great quality from set pieces."
Here is some of the social media reaction from the club's fanbase regarding the news:
Saw him a couple of times in pre season, was steady if unspectacular. Certainly won’t be any worse than our current options in that position, should be decent cover— Ian Dawson (@dawsonilive) 14 October 2019
What a sensible move this is by Bradford City. Given the lengthy injury to our two midfield players this is probably something which suits both parties.— Jonathan Holmes (@jonathanandgill) 14 October 2019
He played pre season for us didn’t look too cracking but it adds experience— Tyler (@TylerRaistrick1) 14 October 2019
Whilst I welcome all new signings and am prepared to give them a chance, I can’t help@feeling this ship should have stayed sailed in summer...I’d of preferred to put wages into Cooke or Connelly permanently— Jamie (@jjfreeman87) 14 October 2019
Hasn’t played a right lot but seems to be decent cover whilst Deviit and Palmer are out.— FiRTHY (@BCAFCFirth) 14 October 2019
