The scheme was introduced in 1981 to assist NSW residents who are unable to use public transport because of a qualifying severe and permanent disability. Transport for NSW administers TTSS.

The NSW Government has implemented an incentive payment for drivers of wheelchair accessible taxis to improve the accessibility, reliability and response times for TTSS participants who require a wheelchair at all times for travel.

Qualified wheelchair accessible taxi drivers can claim $8.47 for each TTSS passenger approved for WAT travel they carry. This fee is not paid by the passengers.
