Traveling with a Disabled Person | Taxi Services Commission
To support an activity that assures that transport service (taxis and rental car, inclusive car pooling) is available to all members of the public, inclusive of disabled persons. Provides information about available utility transportation service throughout the state. WAVs (Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles) allow persons using wheeled chairs to drive in their own chair if they and the chair can be securely held in the car.
A WAV is a rolling stock intended or designed to transport one or more persons sitting in wheeled seats (depending on the rolling stock type) and between 4 and 11 persons not equipped for the carriage of these. Rollers, princesses and other "high chairs" may not be carried in taxi cabs suitable for disabled persons if the customer is sitting in them as it is not secure.
They can, however, be worn in a flat water jacket if both apply: the front passenger can get into a firm position in the car and put on the safety harness. However, they may also be used for the carriage of other persons if they are not occupied with making reservations for the use of another person's chair.
However, if a WAV does not carry users in wheelchairs, it will have the same operational privileges and terms and conditions as normal utility vehicle, but will levy higher (metropolitan) and higher occupation (Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Country and Regional) when transporting five or more users. MPTP (Multipurpose Trip Planner) is available to meet the travelling needs of severely and permanently disabled persons by providing reduced trip prices to members of the programme.
It is our goal to provide more transportation possibilities for our customers, so you will soon have the choice of taking a cab or a rental vehicle, even a ride. Victoria Commercial Vehicles is currently working with both taxis and rental cars (including pool cars) to test the technologies that will allow them to move Max Planck Passenger Transportation (MPTP) under rigorous control.
Working with the community to make sure that their technologies are interoperable with ours, that they can provide you with a secure experience, and that your needs don't shift (you get the full grant and don't have to worry about the collection fee). Once all studies have been completed and evaluated, we will inform our members of the Max Planck Society about the results of the study and any new transportation facilities available to them.
If you take an MPTP member with a Roller or Chairercard ( "M31") with you, your driver will be charged a lift charge for picking up and dropping off guests from wheelchair-accessible cars. The non-metropolitan city of Victoria also pays a hoisting charge for putting a wheeled chair in the trunk of a limousine or estate car. Withdrawal charge is included in your member's price for MTP.
Actual charges are: Remember that the lift charge includes the amount of times the driver needs to get in and out of the vehicle for loading and unloading wheeled and wheeled people. Do not switch on the Tariff Calculator while loading or unloading an M31 card on an MPTP pass. Driver will not be charged the collection charge if they are transporting non-M31 cardholders.
Counter can be turned on while loading or unloading a chair or wheeler for non-MPTP people. There is no charge to the chauffeur for the lift. Should a chauffeur ask you to make a collection charge, take his data and notify us via our complaint forms.
Among the activities aimed at improving the accessibility and dependability of wheelchair related service for those using the wheelchair are the following: MPTP Extension Projects - Back to information about the MPTP Extension Projects at the top of the page. Victoria Commercial Vehicle Charges Guide (CPVV) must be followed by the driver in order to calculate the proper rates under the MPTP program:
Assistants, such as blind hounds, must be approved by the chauffeur for transport in the vehicle.
