What is Total Mobility?

Total Mobility is a nationwide scheme that subsidises taxi services to people with serious mobility constraints that prevent them from using public transport.

It provides:

  • vouchers that discount the normal taxi fare by 50%
  • funding to help purchase and install wheelchair hoists in taxi vans
  • payment to the owner of the vehicle for every hoist trip made.

In the Bay of Plenty the Total Mobility scheme is run by Bay of Plenty Regional Council.
