Broome disabled and elderly residents are set to benefit from a new multi-purpose taxi (MPT) service, thanks to the recently introduced $15,000 Country MPT State Government grant scheme.
Minister Assisting the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure Ljiljanna Ravlich said the Broome MPT was the first country taxi to be modified under the new grant scheme, announced in January this year.
Ms Ravlich said the State Government was committed to improving access to taxi services for people with disabilities and the elderly throughout WA.
“I strongly encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a country taxi driver to contact the DPI.”
