Members of TAS who are wheelchair reliant are entitled to a 60% fare reduction when traveling in a wheelchair accessible taxi. Applicants who are wheelchair reliant are not required to submit a copy of a pensioner concession or health care card when applying for taxi concessions.

All Maxi Taxis accept Tas Access Scheme concession cards, and it is our highest priority to service our TAS customers in a courteous, safe & professional manner. No journey is too short, as concession card members often require a taxi to take them short distances e.g. Doctors surgery, chemist or even to visit a friend.
There are no restrictions on friends or family members accompanying a concession card holder provided they travel from the same point of pick up to the same destination.
