Taxi subsidy scheme

The Taxi Subsidy Scheme provides an affordable and accessible transport option for people with a disability who experience profound difficulties using other modes of public passenger transport. Visit the TransLink website for more information.

Information for taxi drivers

Restricted Use Slips must be carried by drivers to use when:

  • there is a problem with the smartcard reader, or the taxi is in a regional taxi area which is exempt from the requirement to have taxi meters.
  • If there is a problem with the smartcard reader, the taxi driver must use a Restricted Use Slip to process your subsidy.
  • If the taxi is exempt from having a meter, the driver is required to use Restricted Use Slips for all trips.
  • You are still required to present your Taxi Subsidy Scheme smartcard to the taxi driver at the beginning of the journey.
  • At the end of the trip, the taxi driver will complete the Restricted Use Slip. You are advised to check the information entered by the taxi driver and, if able, sign the slip and obtain a receipt from the taxi driver.
