I would like an answer from the government about the difference between the Taxi vouchers for people with disabilities.
While NSW only get a 50% discount while ACT 75% off.
If someone from NSW wanted to work in the ACT from Queanbeyan it’s not feasible for them to travel to ACT for employment (queanbeyan- fyshwick would cost $40 a day after discount). Therefore restricting them from work and social events.
Is this really fair? I have a friend who got a job opportunity to work in the ACT but could not afford the transport cost so she basically is waiting around looking for suitable employment for wheelchair accessible jobs in Queanbeyan. (and no she is unable to catch a bus)
How long is she going to have to wait before someone fixes up this mess??
[ED – perhaps someone can explain what this is all about?]
