Total Mobility makes it easier for people who can’t drive to get out and about in the Far North district. You may be eligible to receive a 50 per cent subsidy (up to a maximum of $15) on door-to-door transport with one of our approved transport operators. The scheme uses an electronic swipe card system.
Total Mobility Far North is administered by Northland Regional Council, with funding from the Far North District Council and Waka Kotahi (NZ Transport Agency).
In the Far North district, the Total Mobility card can be used for travel within the district, where there is an approved transport operator available. You are also able to use your card in other parts of New Zealand where there is a Total Mobility Scheme. Contact Northland Regional Council if you’d like more information about this.
While the scheme aims to provide a subsidy of 50 per cent per trip, this covers only actual travel time. Waiting time is not subsidised.
You need a current Total Mobility card to qualify for the 50 per cent subsidy. To get a card, you need to be assessed by Northland Regional Council, and provide a recent photograph and your contact details, so a card can be produced for you. If you lose your Total Mobility card, report it to council as soon as possible.
A caregiver/support person can travel with the holder of the card if s/he so wishes. No one else is entitled to use the card
You can use your Total Mobility card with the following transport operator in the Far North: Driving Miss Daisy 09 407 9889
