Accessible Information

Wellington has a compact, reasonably flat city centre and a city council committed to providing services and facilities that are accessible to everyone. Most attractions and public buildings can also be easily accessed.

Mobility scooters

Available from various city locations, mobility scooters can be booked by people aged 18+ for up to four hours free of charge.

The scooters are safe and easy to use; trained staff will show you how. The scooters are available to anyone who has limited mobility, from wheelchair users to the elderly. You're even eligible with a broken leg.
