MS Australia opposes cuts to Transport funding

MS Australia (MSA) supports People with Disability Australia and Vision Australia’s call to block a Bill that will reduce transport support for people with disability.
As outlined in the 30 November 2016 PWDA and Vision Australia media release (link below), this Bill will impact the hundreds of thousands of people with disability who will not have access to the NDIS, including people over 65. 
This is of particular concern to MSA, as we know many people living with MS in Australia will not be eligible for an NDIS package or are aged over 65 and rely on the Mobility Allowance to get to and from work and participate in family and community activities.
