WE ARE NDIS APPROVED PROVIDERS FOR NDIS TAXI TRANSPORT AND COMMUNITY TRANSPORT

What is NDIS Funding for Reliable Accessible Disability Taxi Services?

The NDIS participants can access funding through the NDIS for transport funding if the participant cannot use public transport without substantial difficulty due to their mobility limitations or impairments. Funding takes into account any relevant taxi subsidy scheme, and it does not cover transport assistance for carers to transport their family member with a disability for everyday commitments.

Three new participant transport support levels

There are three levels of supports for transport assistance, as set out below. The three levels are used to provide a transport budget for participants.

Level 1 - The NDIS will provide up to $1,606 per year for participants who are not working, studying or attending day programs but are seeking to enhance their community access which will help them achieve the goals outlined in their plan.

Level 2 - The NDIS will provide up to $2,472 per year for participants who are currently working or studying part-time (up to 15 hours a week), participating in day programs and for other social, recreational or leisure activities.

Level 3 - The NDIS will provide up to $3,456 per year for participants who are currently working, looking for work, or studying, at least 15 hours a week, and are unable to use public transport due to their mobility limitations or disability.

Exceptional circumstances: participants may receive higher funding if the participant has either general or funded supports in their plan to enable their participation in employment.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1- What is a wheelchair-accessible disability taxi?

A wheelchair accessible disability taxi (WAT) is a vehicle that has been modified to safely accommodate at least one and up to three wheelchairs. They have a ramp or a passenger lift to assist the wheelchair user with getting into the vehicle, which is far easier than transferring from a wheelchair to a car seat and dismantling the wheelchair for the journey.

2- Can taxis charge more for wheelchair?

Taxis are prohibited from charging wheelchair-users an additional fare for a journey. Drivers will be required to carry the passenger's wheelchair if the wheelchair-user chooses to sit in a passenger seat during the journey.

3- Does Uber have wheelchair-accessible vans?

Uber lets riders who use non-folding motorised wheelchairs connect with drivers in wheelchair-accessible vehicles equipped with ramps or lifts. Riders who use motorised wheelchairs or scooters can (in certain cities) request a ride in a wheelchair-accessible vehicle.

4- Can a disabled person be a taxi driver?

Becoming a licensed taxi or private hire driver like Uber is open to all. However, there are some medical conditions that for public safety reasons, will mean you can't be licensed, so it is important that you discuss your situation with your GP before you apply.
