The NDIS funds:

  • Transport supports for a participant where it is reasonable and necessary and the supports are directly related to the functional impact of their impairment(s).

Generally, transport supports funded by the NDIS include:

  • training and support to use public transport;
  • modification to private vehicles, driver assessment and training; and
  • some costs associated with the use of taxis, private transport or innovative transport options.

Other service systems fund/provide:

  • Accessible public transport options.
  • Transport infrastructure, including road and footpath infrastructure, where this is part of a universal service obligation or reasonable adjustment, including managing disability parking and related initiatives.
  • Concessions to facilitate use of public transport, including where a full concession is offered.
  • Community transport services.

School transport:

  • States and territories continue to provide supported school transport as an in-kind contribution to the NDIS. These arrangements will remain in place until an alternative process is developed through the Senior Officials Working Group.
