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. Individuals wishing to access the scheme must meet the eligibility criteria set by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and adopted by Environment Canterbury.
Half-price fare discount
Total Mobility services are also included in the half-price fare discount and will be applied automatically if using a newer Total Mobility card. If you are using an older card, the discount may not work automatically, but will still be applied to your fare by the driver.
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.
