Ministry of Transport - Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme
The Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme was introduced in 1981 for those who have severe and permanent disability.The Ministry of Transport administers the Scheme. People who qualify for inclusion in the scheme are entitled to a half rate concession of the prescribed taxi fare, up to a maximum subsidy limit of $30 per trip. Disabilities covered by the Scheme must be PERMANENT, ie they cannot be improved by further treatment or rehabilitation. Contact the TTSS to discuss the eligibility criteria of the Scheme. The concessions are available at any time as often as needed - day or night and for any reason - shopping, medical or social. This Ministry also has information on wheelchair accessible taxis in Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, and other country towns.
