Total Mobility

Funded in partnership by local and central government, the Total Mobility Scheme assists eligible people, with long term impairments to access appropriate transport to meet their daily needs and enhance their community participation. This assistance is provided in the form of subsidised door to door transport services wherever scheme transport providers operate. The Total Mobility Scheme is intended to compliment the provision of public transport services, which are expected to be as accessible as possible to meet different mobility needs.
