The Taxi Transport Subsidy Scheme (TTSS) is replacing paper travel dockets with smartcards.
The credit card sized smartcard is easier to carry, includes a photo for added security and works by simply tapping a taxi payment terminal where the subsidy portion of the fare will be deducted.
So far the TTSS Smartcard has been introduced to the following areas:
- New England including Tamworth, Armidale, Glen Innes and Inverell
Cards are currently being distributed to participants in Western, Northern and Southern NSW (excluding the Hunter, Central Coast, and Illawarra) and will be rolled out to the rest of regional NSW and Metropolitan Sydney later this year.
Participants are required to provide a photo to be printed on their card.
Transport for NSW will be in contact with participants prior to the rollout in their area. Participants can call 131 500 to check that their contact details are up-to-date.
