Total Mobility is a nationwide scheme aimed at giving people with disabilities mobility options. Waikato Regional Council administers Total Mobility in Hamilton, Taupō and Tokoroa, and Waipā. The scheme provides financial assistance, giving registered users a 50 per cent discount on taxi fares up to a maximum subsidy which is $12.50 in Waipā.
