Personalised public transport

Personalised public transport (PPT) operates in areas where TransLink services are restricted. Black and White Cabs provide wheelchair accessible and air conditioned maxi-cabs.

PPT services:

  • carry up to 10 people
  • pick up passengers where safe to do so on a fixed route

PPT is different to the Council cab service.

Fares

All PPT fares are $1 each way (no concessions apply). Children under 5 years and legally blind people travel free.

Customers who transfer from a PPT to a TransLink service must then pay the TransLink fare.
