About point to point transport

Point to point transport provides flexible, convenient options for our customers to get from A to B via the route they choose at a time that suits. Point to point transport includes:

  • Taxis
  • Hire cars
  • Tourist services
  • Rideshare services
  • Community transport

For customers with disability

The NSW Government has committed $15.5 million a year to a 5-point plan which will improve point to point transport services for customers with disabilities. 

Wheelchair Accessible Taxi (WAT) licence fees in metro areas have been reduced to zero, in line with the rest of NSW. 

Other initiatives that have been in place from 1 July 2016 include: 

  • Increasing the maximum Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme (TTSS) subsidy from $30 to $60 per trip
  • Increasing the WAT driver incentive payment from $7.70 (ex. GST) to $15 (ex. GST) per trip
  • Expanding the WAT interest-free loan scheme from $1 million to $5 million to help get more WATs on the road
  • Providing a fully subsidised central booking service for WATs in Sydney, saving businesses that provide these services $2,130 per year.

Now that the legislative framework is in place under the Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016, Transport for NSW is planning a review of all subsidies and incentives of services for people with disability.
