Following the Government’s announcement, half price taxi fares continue for the Total Mobility scheme.
What is the Total Mobility scheme
The Total Mobility scheme is a national scheme which supports people who cannot use public transport to travel, all or some of the time.
In Auckland, those who are eligible get a subsidised rate on contracted taxis for door to door transport, and an accessible concession loaded on a Total Mobility AT HOP card used to pay for discounted travel on public transport.
Total Mobility customers receive a 75% discount off taxi fares, up to a maximum fare cap of $80 per trip. For trips over $80, Auckland Transport will only pay a maximum subsidy of $60 subsidy.
How does the Total Mobility discount work?
Total Mobility customers can receive a 75% discount off taxis fares, up to a maximum fare cap of $80 per trip. For trips over $80, Auckland Transport will only pay a maximum subsidy of $60 subsidy.
The following table shows examples of how fares are calculated after the 75% discount.
|Cash fare without subsidy||Subsidy amount||Price paid by customer|
|$80 (fare cap)||$60||$20|
