Eligibility

The Victorian Government wants to make sure that the Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) is helping the people who need it most. You can become an MPTP member if you meet the residential, medical and financial criteria.

Residential criteria

You must be a permanent resident of Australia and live in Victoria.

Medical criteria

You must have:

  • a severe disability that prevents you from safely and independently using public transport
  • a permanent disability
  • a disability that is not likely to improve with treatment.

Financial criteria

You must also be able to demonstrate financial hardship by supplying a Notice of Assessment from the last financial year or hold one of the following:

  • a Centrelink issued concession card (such as the Aged Pension or Disability Support Pension)
  • a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) card (eg. Gold Repatriation Health card) or an EDA (Extreme Disablement Adjustment) or TPI (Totally and Permanently Incapacitated) notation.

Passengers who require the use of a wheelchair permanently are exempt from the financial hardship test.
