Accessible ACTION

Did you know that if you have a regular requirement for a wheelchair accessible bus on your route, you can contact ACTION or ring them on 131710 to register your request.  Where possible ACTION will try to meet this request. If ACTION is not able to meet this request immediately it will try to take your needs into account with future network planning.


ACT Taxi Subsidy Scheme

If you have severe mobility problems or some other health conditions, you can apply under the ACT Taxi Subsidy Scheme for a card to use in taxis which will subsidise the cost of your trips.  The Scheme is not means-tested and is not limited to particular types of trips (eg medical).  To find out more about eligibility and how the Scheme works, call 6205 1012 or ask your GP.
