The program supports people with limited mobility by offering subsidised taxi fares.
It pays half the cost of each taxi trip taken by its users, up to $60.

NDIS rollout and the Multi-Purpose Taxi Program
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is being progressively rolled out across Victoria. It may change the way some program users' taxi trips are funded.
We are working with the National Disability Insurance Agency to confirm how eligible users will receive transport support through the NDIS. During this time, there will be no change to the way users access their subsidy. In addition, wheelchair-accessible taxi operators and drivers will continue to be paid the lifting fee.
Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria will contact affected users once arrangements have been finalised and before any changes take place.
