Veteran Travel Concessions
TPI/EDA Travel Pass – Multi-Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP)
The Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) is a Victorian Government initiative that provides concessional taxi-fares for residents of Victoria who have a severe and permanent disability that prevents them from independently getting about and their doctor deems the disability is unlikely to improve.
The MPTP provides a concession of 50% on a taxi fare ie the taxi fare is $50, you pay $25 and the Victorian Government pays $25. From 4 Aug 20 to 3 Nov 20 the subsidy has been increased to $70 per trip.
Applications for an MPTP card can be made through the Victorian Government website at web2.economicdevelopment.vic.gov.au/taxi/passengers/mptp/how-to-apply.
