Free ‘plus-one’ bus travel
Free bus travel for carers of people with accessibility concession cards is now available in the Waikato region. Around 2400 people hold concession cards for free bus travel in the area. The card was introduced in 2019 and is for people with permanent or short-term disabilities of longer than six months. Cardholders who need assistance to travel can now register their ‘plus ones’ with Waikato Regional Council.
