The NDIS will pay for your transport if you can't use public transport or if you're not part of a taxi scheme, and it's reasonable and necessary. This means that funding your transport has to be fair and something you need.

Here are the NDIS rules around transport:

  • Level 1 - The NDIS will provide up to $1,606 per year for participants who are not working, studying or attending day programs but are seeking to enhance their community access.

  • Level 2 - The NDIS will provide up to $2,472 per year for participants who are currently working or studying part-time (up to 15 hours a week), participating in day programs and for other social, recreational or leisure activities.

  • Level 3 - The NDIS will provide up to $3,456 per year for participants who are currently working, looking for work, or studying, at least 15 hours a week, and are unable to use public transport because of their disability.

If it is reasonable and necessary, participants are able to receive money for transport above the level 3 payments.
