Our Door-to-Door Services are the hassle free way to get to your appointments on time and without the worry of meeting public transport schedules or getting caught out in bad weather.
Medical Appointment Transport
Book our Door-to-Door service to take you to your next medical appointment. We will pick you up at home and take you to your appointment, accompanying you into the clinic or hospital to make sure you get to the right place. We can also attend the appointment with you if you need a support person.
This service includes:
Custom pick up/drop off
Help getting in and out of the vehicle if required
Assistance with wheel chairs and walkers
Disability parking permit
Wheel chair supplied if needed
Free ACC transport to related appointments
ACC Funded Transport
We are an approved ACC provider for transport. This means ACC claimants can be transported to related medical appointments, to work and other appointments and errands including Psychiatrist visits and approved wellness outings.
Children are also able to be taken to school if the ACC claimant is unable to do so.
Contact us to book our services using ACC.
Total Mobility Service
We are currently offering this service in the Taranaki Region only. We will travel anywhere in this region to provide this service. This means we are able to process Total Mobility Cards to give you discounted fares.
Anyone living in the Taranaki region and with an impairment that affects their ability to use public transport can apply to join the Total Mobility Scheme.
Find out more information about the Totoal Mobility Scheme and how to apply here with Taranaki Regional Council.
We are able to take you wherever you need to go, whenever you need to go:
Day-to-day personal needs like shopping and salon appointments
Meetings and events
Activities and outings of your choice
If you are struggling for something to do but really want to get out of the house, just email or phone us with your interests and we can suggest some things to do!
We can take up to 11 people whenever you need to go. This is a great opportunity to get together with friends/clubs and visit a museum, a botanical garden, a special interest class or even a concert!
We can also suggest places to go or things to do so feel free to get in touch for some inspiration!
Follow our Brand page BL Tourism Group on Facebook for events and ideas as well.
Cleaning and Minding Services
Have a loved one at home that needs company while you're using one of our above services? We can also provide a companion at-home service too! This could also apply for pets. This gives you peace of mind that someone is at home to take care of things for you while you are out with our driving service.
Along with this service we can offer:
House cleaning services - general housework and chores, cleaning all those hard to get at places, organisation and meal preparation.
Gardening - weeding, pruning, mowing.

Please enquire if you have any suggested services that are not listed here.
Airport Drop Off & Pickups
Combining our Door-to-door personalised service with Airport transport gives you a quality hassle free service to make your flight with no stresses. We can assist with all luggage and accompany you inside the airport to make sure you check in with no problems if you need some help.
We can provide taxi/shuttle services for business groups to hotels, venues and restaurants. One mode of transport for the whole business itinerary means no calling different taxis throughout the day or evening and your group stays together saving time and hassle. We can accommodate small to large groups as well as individuals.
If you've brought loved ones on your business trip we can also take them on city tours, shopping or to local activities to pass the time while you are busy. This could apply for the loved ones that may have traveled with your colleagues too for a group outing together if needed.
Prices and Booking
We are a pre-booked service so please contact us for a quote. We are comparable to or even cheaper than a professional taxi service but we offer so much more in terms of quality and service.
Prices are based on distance traveled and time depending on what kind of services you require and we will quote based on your specific requirements. Prices are often reduced if you book us regularly.
