Total Mobility is a nationwide scheme designed to help eligible people with impairments to use appropriate transport to help make their community participation better. This help is given in the form of subsidised door-to-door transport services wherever scheme transport providers operate.
In the Bay of Plenty it's run by Bay of Plenty Regional Council. The scheme gives financial assistance by way of a voucher that allows registered users of the scheme to a 50% discount on taxi fares. The user is required to pay the other half of the fare to the taxi driver, at the time the trip is taken. Users of the scheme must carry a Total Mobility photo ID card to be able to use vouchers.
