As part of the national response to COVID-19, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has extended its fare reduction for Total Mobility customers until 30 June 2020.
Here in Marlborough, this means that Total Mobility customers can access fully subsidised fares of up to $30 per trip until the end of June.
The fare subsidy is only for the transportation of Total Mobility customers with permanent disabilities.
The scheme will revert to its usual operation and payment processes on 1 July 2020, which require Total Mobility clients to pay 50 per cent of the cost of a trip up to the regional maximum fare, and 100 per cent of any cost over the maximum fare amount of $30.
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. The Council manages and operates the scheme locally, with subsidy funding from NZTA.
