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. The Total Mobility Scheme is intended to complement the provision of public transport services, which are expected to be as accessible as possible to meet different mobility needs. The Total Mobility Scheme is governed by the NZTA but administered in Auckland by Auckland Transport. The Scheme represents a key part in the provision of transport options for Auckanders.
Auckland Transport is looking for operators with Small Passenger Service Licenses (or who could obtain a licence by 1 July 2019) in order to supply services to eligible customers under the Total Mobility Scheme.
Auckland Transport is looking to ensure that eligible customers are able to access appropriate transport quickly; be transported safely; and be treated with dignity. This means that coverage of suitable operators across the region is important as is the quality of the actual service provided. Auckland Transport is also keen to ensure that the operation of the Scheme itself is effectively managed and is looking to ensure that suitable systems and processes are embedded in operators’ organizations.
