Total Mobility will be fare-free for eligible users up to the regional fare subsidy cap, while New Zealand is at COVID-19 pandemic response alert levels 3 and 4, up until 30 June 2020. This aligns with the similar COVID-19 fare-free public transport policy.
Reducing fares for Total Mobility services is a way to help ensure that essential service workers can get to work, and the general public can access essential services.
The fare reduction policy takes effect from Tuesday, 14 April 2020.
The Total Mobility scheme is part of New Zealand’s public transport system and is designed to be used when standard public transport services are not accessible for the Total Mobility user.
It’s important that people have equal access to essential goods and services.
Are all Total Mobility trips completely free?
From 14 April 2020, Total Mobility trips will be free for clients, up to the regional fare subsidy cap.
