As part of the national response to COVID-19, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has implemented a fare reduction for Total Mobility customers. Customers can access fully subsidised fares of up to $30 per trip, ensuring access to essential services and the ability for essential workers to access their workplace.
This fare reduction will be in place while New Zealand is at COVID-19 alert levels 4 and 3, until 30 June 2020. This may be reviewed earlier if the COVID-19 alert is reduced to levels 2 or 1. The fare subsidy is only for the transportation of Total Mobility customers with permanent disabilities.
The Total Mobility Scheme assists eligible people with a permanent disability or impairment to access appropriate transport to enhance their community participation. This assistance is provided in the form of subsidised door-to-door transport services wherever scheme transport providers operate.
Marlborough District Council manages and operates the scheme locally, with subsidy funding from NZTA.
