Wheelchair Accessible Taxis - Interest Free Loans Update

25 August 2016 | NSW Taxi Council

Please note that the period for applications for the Wheelchair Accessible Taxi (WAT) Interest Free Loan has been extended to 16 September 2016. The NSW Taxi Council sought an additional period for these applications, with Transport for NSW agreeing to this request. 

Loans of up to $100,000 are available to the taxi industry to fund the full cost of putting a new WAT on the road, or retrofit an existing WAT vehicle. The loans are part of an expanded interest free loans scheme, with up to $5 million available in the current funding round.
