NDIS Transport and Travel​

Core Supports

NDIS Transport Services

Travel options may seem simple and obvious to many people, but when you’re living with a disability, getting from place to place can present a serious challenge.


People living with a disability may face many obstacles in their mobility, including their ability to secure and access transportation, whether private or public.


Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, there are ample support services available with funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you live your life to the fullest. Let’s take a look at exactly what this means and how you can make the most of your opportunities

How can Transport and Travel Services Help Someone With a Disability?


If you are living with a disability, mobility may be one of your many core struggles. Transport is necessary to live an ordinary life, but personal circumstances may hinder your or a loved ones ability to drive a car or ride public transport. You may also find that accessing other transportation options such as taxis are limited for you. This can lead to significant limitations when it comes to getting around, going to appointments, getting to and from work or school, travelling, shopping, or visiting friends and family.


One of the biggest challenges people with disabilities face is the lack of independence due to personal circumstances. With the help of Transport and Travel Services, this can open up a whole new level of independence, having the ability to fully participate in your community, social circles, and personal tasks.

Do I Qualify For Transport and Travel Services Under the NDIS?

There are many factors that the NDIS considers before deciding on your available funding. The support service needs to be reasonable and necessary to help you achieve your goals, purpose, and aspirations.

Transport and Travel Services are covered under the Core Supports - arranging and providing transport, but it can also fall under any of the other Core Supports if you have a need for it within those categories.

The specifics of your NDIS Plan will determine how you can use the available funds, whether they’re considered Core Supports, Capacity Building, or Capital Funding. If you’re not sure if your needs fall under this category, we can help you clarify with the NDIA exactly what is and isn’t covered under your personalised plan.

What transport and Travel Services are Available Under NDIS?

Funding for Transport under the NDIS can pay for a community bus, a taxi, or another kind of transport for those who are unable to get around themselves. However, it may not be used to pay a family member to drive you around.

Transport funding through the NDIS can also go towards activities to help you build confidence through transport options. For example, if you have challenges you would like to overcome that make independent travel difficult, the NDIS may fund public transport training or driving lessons.

The NDIS can also fund travel with a care worker who may accompany you to any community involvement, social connections or daily life activities. This type of funding usually falls under Assistance with Social and Community Participation.

Modifications to a private vehicle you use for transport that makes it easier to access or operate can also be funded by NDIS under Assistive Technology.

Can You Use NDIS for Transport and Travel?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds reasonable and necessary support for people living with disabilities and each participant's NDIS Plan is different. If your mobility is limited due to living with a disability, and you’re unable to drive or take public transport, NDIS can provide you with a general transport allowance to avail of Maple’s Transport and Travel Services.
