Assessment

The TSC will assess and determine if you can become a member and may ask you or your doctor for more information.

We may ask you to see an independent doctor or have medical tests to confirm the information you gave in your application. Normally you will be asked to pay for this. This may include further medical or financial information to complete the application process.

Application process:

  • It can take up to 14 business days for your application to be processed
  • If approved, you will receive an invoice of $16.50 for your card
  • The taxi card will arrive four to five business days from when we receive payment
  • If you do not meet the medical or financial criteria, you will be notified by letter.

Renewing your card

An MPTP taxi card expires after six years. You will receive an invoice of $16.50 for your new card six weeks prior to the card expiring.

When you receive your new card, destroy the old card. The old card won't work after its expiry date.

It is important to tell us if:

  • you change your address, or
  • your circumstances have changed. For example, you can no longer sign your name or you now use a wheelchair all the time.
