Update on the NT Transport Subsidy Scheme

  • The Disability Reform Council endorsed an approach to improve the provision of transport supports under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This includes interim measures to increase transport funding for NDIS participants who are significant users of taxi subsidy schemes, and the full reimbursement of states and territories for the continuation of their schemes for NDIS participants until longer-term transport support policy and funding is resolved.
  • The Northern Territory Government continues to work with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on finalising the transport support policy. Current NDIS members who receive the transport component, and who are also receiving support under the NT Transport Subsidy Scheme (TSS) will continue to do so in the interim.
