The way to join the total mobility scheme:
To join the scheme applicants are assessed by approved assessment agencies. All agencies charge a fee for this service, please check what their assessment or membership fee(s) are.
The assessment process identifies whether your mobility constraint means you cannot manage any one or more of these components of a journey:
- Getting to the place from where the transport departs.
- Getting onto the transport.
- Riding securely.
- Getting off the transport.
- Getting to the final destination.
In the Bay of Plenty the Total Mobility scheme is run by Bay of Plenty Regional Council.
