Restrictions to the Total Mobility scheme in the Waikato

  • One trip – one voucher.
  • Waikato Regional Council will not pay for waiting time.
  • No blue vouchers (for group travel and where payment is not made by a scheme member) issued outside the region will be honoured.
  • As pink vouchers are used in our region, it is essential that you advise the taxi driver or the taxi company when you book the service that you will be using a voucher issued in another region before you get into the cab.

Note: if you are from Auckland or Wellington where a smart card is used, you will need to obtain vouchers before you travel.
