What can the NDIS Do?
Black & White Cabs has been servicing and supporting people with disabilities for over 100 years. We’re proud to provide transportation services for members of the community who are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS offers all Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the support they need to enjoy their lives.
At Black & White Cabs, we understand accessing transport is vital to the social and economic participation in the community for people with a disability. In our role as an NDIS transport provider, we drive eligible passengers to appointments, school, their place of employment, and other locations.
Our drivers undergo a rigorous training program to ensure they have the skills to provide a safe and reliable NDIS transport for people with disabilities. All passengers are invited to ‘Rate the Driver’, so we can make sure drivers meet our NDIS customer service standards. Safety cameras are also fitted to every vehicle to give passengers and their carers peace of mind.

Nominating an NDIS Transport Provider
The NDIS gives you choice and control over the support you receive and who you receive them from. You’ll be able to access funding through the NDIS for transport services if you can’t use public transport without significant difficulty due to your disability. By nominating Black & White Cabs as your NDIS transport provider, you can be confident of always having access to reliable transport.
The amount of transport services available to you will depend on the conditions of your NDIS plan. Each level of support considers whether you’re working, seeking employment, studying, or attending day programs.
Black & White Cabs will provide a Service Agreement and make sure you understand the Agreement before you sign. We can work with Plan Nominees and Plan Management Providers, or directly with the Participant.
