Transit Accessibility Plan

Our Transit Accessibility Plan includes the requirements from the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The plan outlines our specific strategies to make sure our service is accessible for people of all ages and abilities. It's been reviewed by the Accessibility Advisory Committee, our operating and support staff, the City's Accessibility Coordinator and the public at an Accessibility Advisory Committee meeting.
