TUSS for drivers

This section provides guidance for passenger transport drivers about their Taxi User Subsidy Scheme (TUSS) responsibilities and how to safely transport people with disability.

TUSS is a subsidy available to certain eligible people with disability travelling in taxis. All taxi drivers in WA are legally required to accept TUSS vouchers as part payment for a fare. 

Some TUSS participants may be able to travel in conventional taxis. Other participants may have accessibility needs that mean they need to travel in a specially modified wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV).

The TUSS Guidelines outline how TUSS operates in WA and describe the rules of using TUSS for participants, drivers and on-demand booking services (ODBSs).

Penalties apply if the TUSS Guidelines are not followed or if drivers refuse to accept TUSS vouchers.
