Total Mobility

The Total Mobility scheme is available to people in Greater Christchurch, Ashburton, Timaru and Waimate. Eligible individuals are entitled to discounts that give them 50 per cent off transport fares with approved operators — up to a maximum of $35 per trip.

Half-price fare discount

Total Mobility services are included in the government’s current half-price public transport fare discount and will be applied automatically if using a Total Mobility card.

While the general 50% offer is currently set to end on 30 June, the discount will continue for Total Mobility services on a permanent basis. The 50% discount is on top of existing discounts prior to the 2022 changes.

Environment Canterbury is also planning on introducing discounted travel for Total Mobilty customers when using Metro buses in Greater Christchurch from June 2023. For more information see our half-price fares page on the Metro website.

Driver reward programme

If you receive Total Mobility discounts in the Greater Christchurch area and your driver provides exceptional service, you can nominate them for a driver reward by contacting the transport operator they work for. Your feedback will be used by the company to help identify drivers providing the best service. The company can then nominate one wheelchair van driver and one car driver from their organisation for a reward administered by the Christchurch Total Mobility Committee.
