Accessible Transit Matters

Posted on Monday, January 24, 2022 04:00 AM

Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be aware.

Transit agencies throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area, including Burlington Transit, are asking you and all  our customers, to think about your fellow travellers with a disability - visible and non-visible.

As you travel on transit, think about what you can do to help others travel safely and comfortably. This can be as simple as getting up from a priority or courtesy seat or providing room while a person with a disability boards a bus.

Let’s make sure we all able to get where we are going.

Understanding gets us all there safely. Priority boarding enables passengers with disabilities to get on and off transit as safely as possible.

 

Be aware, look up at every stop. If you are able, offer your seat to passengers with visible and non-visible disabilities.

 

Stand up for your neighbours. If you are able, offer your seat to other passengers.

 

Remember not all disabilities are visible. Offer your seat...
