A new NDIS Price Guide is now available on the NDIS website introducing nine activity-based transport items. This increases flexibility for participants to exercise choice and control over their transport. Providers will also find it easier to claim non-labour transport costs incurred when transporting or accompanying participants to and from activities in the community.
Non-labour costs associated with participant transport can include public transport fares, road tolls, parking fees, reasonable vehicle running costs and taxi ride fares. While these items are not price-controlled, the NDIS Price Guide (effective 1st March 2020) outlines a reasonable level of non-labour costs.
