Mobility Access

TMARG (Taupo Mobility Access Reference group) is a community group representing a range of people with restricted mobility, sight and hearing impairments. They meet regularly to look at issues of restrictions to getting around in the community.

Together TMARG and Taupo District Council have developed a Taupo Districts Access brochure. The information collated covers Taupo, Mangakino and Turangi. The objective of the brochure is to inform community members and visitors of accessible facilities such as; banks, ATMs, accommodation, dining, parking, public toilets, respite care and medical facilities.

The brochure project included assessing and rating the facilities in the district. The ratings included:

  • Poor: Red (Most need assistance)
  • Moderate: Yellow (May need assistance)
  • Good: Green (Little or no assistance required, 90%-100% accessible)

This brochure is available at the Taupo District Council, Turangi and Mangakino offices, Taupo and Turangi i-SITE, and also respite care facilities listed within the brochure.
