Council Cab Service
The Council Cab service organises shared taxis at scheduled times for residents who find it difficult to get to their local shops. You can use the Council Cab if you are:
over 60 years old, or mobility impaired, or a Pensioner Concession Card or Centrelink Seniors Card holder, or a child under the care of an eligible person, or a carer accompanying someone who is eligible. 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. The Council cab operates weekly in most Brisbane suburbs. In some areas, services are offered twice a week. The service picks you up from your home and takes you to your local shopping centre. Each one-way trip costs between $1 and $3. This fare is paid to the driver as you board. Find out if your suburb is serviced. You can contact your Councillor for more details. To book the Council Cab service, phone 3403 2227.
