What is NDIS funded Travel & Transport?

Travel/Transport is an important service provided by the National Disability Insurance Scheme(NDIS) to help people with disabilities access transportation services. This service is designed to provide NDIS participants with the necessary support to access essential services and participate in the community.

Accessing travel/transport services is a simple process for NDIS participants. They can request this service through their NDIS plan by discussing their transportation needs with their support coordinator or NDIS planner. Alternatively, they can find registered providers offering this service through the NDIS provider portal or by contacting the NDIS contact centre.

NDIS participants need and use travel/transport services for various reasons. For instance, some participants may have mobility issues or other disabilities that prevent them from using public transportation. Others may live in areas with limited public transportation options, making it difficult for them to get around independently. Travel/transport support is critical for NDIS participants to access essential services and participate in the community.
