What is Assistance with Travel and Transport?
Assistance with Travel and Transport
This support ensures you have equal opportunity to get around. Transport is an essential aspect of life for people living with disabilities. This allows you to engage with the community, contribute to the economy, educate yourself, and achieve greater independence. This may include: access to taxis, rideshares, community transport, registered transport providers and other appropriate transport methods.
Your level of transport assistance funding will depend on how you access the community, and the support levels are as follows:
The NDIS will provide up to $2,472 per year if you 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.
The NDIS will provide up to $3,456 per year if you are currently working, looking for work, or studying, at least 15 hours a week, and are unable to use public transport because of your disability.
