Participants with high out-of-pocket taxi costs will receive an automatic increase in their transport funding today.
Participants can check their budget on the participant portal or call 1800 800 110.
Participants with very high out-of-pocket taxi costs or complex needs have been contacted by the NDIA to review their transport funding.
The NDIA used taxi subsidy scheme data to identify participants with these high costs.
This interim measure will make sure participants keep getting the support they need, while the Agency works on a long term plan for funding transport supports.
Transport funding is available to participants who are unable to use public transport due to their disability. The NDIS now funds taxi subsidy scheme costs for NDIS participants.
