Fact Sheet

Total Mobility Scheme

What is Total Mobility?

The Total Mobility Scheme provides subsidised taxi services to people who have an impairment that prevents them from undertaking a journey unaccompanied, on a bus, train or ferry in a safe and dignified manner.

The scheme provides vouchers or electronic cards to eligible scheme members that discount the normal taxi (or specialist transport provider) fare by 50 percent up to a maximum fare (set by the relevant regional council).

Is it available in the West Coast?

The level of subsidy is 50% per trip.

The maximum contribution per trip is $15. This means the council will pay half of your taxi fare up to a maximum meter fare of $30. Any additional fare over that amount you must pay in full yourself.

Restrictions to the Total Mobility Scheme on the West Coast

Return trips are not covered by one voucher. Separate vouchers must be used for each trip.

Note: if you are from Auckland or Wellington where a smart card is used, you will need to obtain vouchers before you travel.
