CPSA welcomes accessible taxi fare subsidy increase

“CPSA welcomes the doubling of the maximum fare subsidy under the Taxi  Transport  Subsidy  Scheme (TTSS)”, said CPSA Policy Coordinator, Paul Versteege.

“The maximum TTSS subsidy had not been increased for longer than anybody reliant on the TTSS would care to remember. CPSA would welcome the introduction of a periodic indexation of the maximum fare subsidy under the TTSS.

“The Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme’s eligibility criteria are framed to include people with mobility impairment regardless of cause. This enables older people whose mobility impairment is age-related to also use the Scheme.”
