The Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme (TTSS) assists eligible residents of NSW with severe or permanent disability to use the taxi service. TTSS participants use vouchers to receive a subsidy on their taxi fare. The TTSS vouchers can be used in both WATs and non-WATS.
In the case of a shared hiring with another scheme participant, each passenger pays 25% of the fare for the distance traveled while more than one participant occupies that taxi. For a shared hiring each participant must complete a travel docket.
If a scheme participant travels with a companion who is not a member of the scheme they can choose how to pay using a TTSS voucher for up to 50% of the fare if they choose, subject to the limit of subsidy.

Protect your rights to access the TTSS by ensuring no genuine accusation of fraud can be made.
Never attempt to pay the fare with more then one TTS voucher. This is against the law and gaol terms can apply.
Never give TTSS dockets to someone else to use.
Always make sure the voucher is filled in correctly at the time of the hiring
