Half Priced Taxi Card

The Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) makes transport more accessible and affordable for people with a severe disability

What is it?

The MPTP Card is issued by Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria (CPVV).

MPTP members receive 50 per cent off the standard fare (covering up to $60 per trip).

Please note the cost of any road tolls or airport fees are paid by the passenger.

Eligibility

To be eligible for an MPTP card you must:

  • be a permanent resident of Australia and live in Victoria
  • have a severe and permanent disability that your doctor deems is not likely to improve with treatment
  • be unable to use public transport safely and independently.

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 (e.g. Gold Repatriation Health card) or an EDA (Extreme Disablement Adjustment) or TPI (Totally and Permanently Incapacitated) notation.
