Council Cabs

The Council Cabs service organises shared taxis at scheduled times for residents who find it difficult to get to their local shops.  

You can use Council Cabs if you are:

  • over 60 years old, or
  • mobility impaired, or
  • a Pensioner Concession Card or Centrelink Seniors Card holder.

If you are eligible to use this service, you may be accompanied by a carer or a child under your care.

All Council Cabs now honour the Queensland Government Companion Card, allowing free travel for anyone accompanying a person with disability who requires attendant care support.

To make sure there is room for everyone, shopping is limited to five regular plastic bags or three recycled bags, or the equivalent, per passenger.
