The CTO is calling on the incoming government to implement the following four key initiatives:
- That Government subsidised transport be made exempt from the Point-to-Point Passenger Levy.
- That Community transport be deemed eligible for the Taxi Subsidy Scheme.
- That the Community Transport Program (CTP) funding program must be expanded to include transport for employment and education purposes, and
- That the Older Persons Mobility Plan must be reviewed with a focus on promoting a human-centric transport experience. It must recognise the expanded role that supported transport can have in maintaining independence, self-determination, and economic mobility.
