Subsidised taxis for some

A NEW partnership between the Northern Rivers Community Transport, Lismore Taxis and Casino Cabs will offer more flexible transportoptions for the elderly, the disabled and their carers.

Eligible people will have access to special transport vouchers that will grant them a subsidised fare when using Lismore or Casino taxis.

The vouchers are allocated according to a tiered system, where by patrons living in more distant locations will be entitled to a greater subsidy than those downtown.

The vouchers will ensure people are able to make visits to loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes on weekends and after business hours when other transport options might not be available.

Lismore and Casino drivers involved in the scheme will include help to and from the door, as well as help with equipment, as part of the service.

Call Northern Rivers Community Transport on 6628 6000 to find out if you are eligible for the scheme.
