NSW Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme

Half Price Cab Fares

The Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme (TTSS) provides subsidised travel, allowing approved participants to travel by taxi at half fare, up to a maximum subsidy of $30 per trip.

The scheme was introduced in 1981 to assist NSW residents who are unable to use public transport because of a qualifying severe and permanent disability.

Transport for NSW administers TTSS.

Who is eligible?

Each application is reviewed by Transport for NSW's independent medical assessor. It is important that the applicant's medical practitioner or treating specialist provides enough detail and supporting documents to allow the severity of your disability or medical condition to be assessed.

Participation is not means tested. Receipt of an aged, invalid, blind or any other pension will not automatically qualify you for participation in the TTSS.

For more details read the Eligibility criteria.

Terms and conditions

Applicants for participation in TTSS are required to read and agree to the TTSS Terms and Conditions. Please read these specific requirements before completing the application.

For more details read the General Information booklet to help answer further questions about TTSS.
