Assist Travel / Transport

Travel Transport

At Sunlight Disability Care, we assist participants in accessing transport services if they cannot use public transport due to their disability. Our friendly and dedicated support workers will provide you with guidance and assist you with travel. 

Our all-support workers hold Valid driver’s licenses, Reliable cars, and insurance so you are comfortable with them.

A member of Sunlight Disability Care will take you to your appointment or elsewhere in the community and then bring you home safely. We regularly provide safe, comfortable transport to attend appointments such as :

  1. Attending medical or general appointments
  2. Accompany around the community for shopping or to meet a friend 
  3.  Attending school/college 
  4. Weekly or regular trips to other transport services as required.
  5. SHOP by list
  6. Attending work or school

What is transport funding?

A participant will generally be able to access funding through the NDIS for transport assistance if the participant cannot use public transport without substantial difficulty due to their disability.

Funding takes into account any relevant taxi subsidy scheme, and it does not cover transport assistance for carers to transport their family member with a disability for everyday commitments.

Please note this information is related to participant transport arrangements. The Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits document has details about travel by providers of supports.

Expected levels of transport support

There are three levels of supports for transport assistance, as set out below. The three levels are used to provide a transport budget for participants. NDIA funded supports are indexed on an annual basis.

Three new participant transport support levels

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.

Exceptional circumstances: participants may receive higher funding if the participant has either general or funded support in their plan to enable their participation in employment.
