NDIS Transport Funding - NDIS Factsheets

On this page there are Plain English and Easy Read Factsheets about Transport funding on the bottom right hand side of the page.

This is from one of the Factsheets:

You can get NDIS funding for transport only if you can not take public transport. For example, you can not take a
  • city bus
  • train.
If you can not take public transport, the NDIS can give you money for
a community bus. For example,
  • a bus for people with a disability
  • a taxi
  • another kind of transport.
This money is for your transport only.

This money is not to pay
  • your carer
  • for someone in your family to drive you around. For example, to an activity, like shopping.

Mobility Allowance

You will not receive a mobility allowance once your NDIS plan has been approved. Your mobility allowance will need to be covered by your NDIS plan.

  2. Aids and Equipment - including
    a. Vehicle modifications to a private vehicle, and associated maintenance,
    b. Driver assessment and training.
  3. Community transport, taxi and other private transport costs for people with ongoing functional impairments which make public travel unfeasible or inappropriate.
