If you live independently within the Bega Valley Shire, you may be eligible to use our taxi vouchers. Taxi vouchers are a great way to help you travel at any time, when you have limited options for transport.
If eligible, you can purchase a maximum of 10 vouchers per month, costing you $10, which allows you $50 worth of taxi transport. Each voucher will be specifically bar-coded to your name.
You are asked to pay a contribution fee of $1 for every $5 voucher you receive (10 vouchers equals $10).
Eligibility criteria apply for all services, including taxi vouchers. If you wish to apply for the vouchers, please call us for an assessment.
Taxi bookings must be made directly through the Taxi provider. Please notify them that you will be using Taxi Vouchers for Shoalhaven Community Transport Service . The vouchers are not transferable or redeemable for cash, and change will not be given – you will have to pay the difference between the vouchers and the taxi fare.
Our Taxi Vouchers are accepted by the local taxi operators in the Bega Valley Shire area.
The vouchers are valid in the Bega Valley Shire and Shoalhaven Local Government areas. Vouchers do not have an expiry date, but we encourage you to use them within a reasonable time frame.
Vouchers remain the property of Bega Valley Community Transport Service and are not to be used with any other taxi subsidy system.
Please note: Taxi vouchers are issued in the name of Shoalhaven Community Transport Service.
