Mobility Aid (scooter) recharge points

Recharge access points are now available at:

  • Alexandra Library (49 Grant Street)

We also encourage businesses and organisations to provide a power point for people to recharge the batteries of their electric scooter or wheelchair.

Look out for the recharge symbol:

More recharge points around townships would be great, please contact us on (03) 5772 0333 if you would like to provide a power point for this purpose.

Access Murrindindi Project

We want our townships to be accessible to residents and tourists with mobility issues so we are identifying and implementing a range of actions to achieve this such as checking shops and businesses and advising the owners how to make access easy, and completing pathways to important locations.

If you are a business in Murrindindi and you would like to be involved in providing ‘access all abilities’ features at your premises please contact us on (03) 5772 0333.

Multi Purpose Taxi Program

The Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) assists with the travel needs of people with severe and permanent disabilities by offering subsidised taxi fares to members.

MPTP provides members subsidised taxi fares, paying up to $60 per trip. Some members have a yearly limit.

Road tolls, airport fees and Silver Service fees are not part of the metered fare and they must be paid in full by the passenger. They are not included as part of the MPTP subsidy.

MPTP members with a wheelchair or scooter are never required to pay the lifting fee. The lifting fee is covered under your MPTP membership.

The taxi meter must not be turned on while a wheelchair or scooter is being loaded or unloaded. If a driver asks you to pay a lifting fee, take their details and report this to the Victorian Taxi Directorate.

When a passenger does not have a MPTP Wheelchair/Scooter Taxi Card, the lifting fee is not paid. On these occasions, drivers are permitted to turn the meter on while loading/unloading passengers. This includes when carrying Wheelchair Accessible Taxi (WAT) passengers from interstate.

Travelling with a mobility aid

Please notify the taxi company that you are using a mobility aid when you make a booking.
