Accessible Public Transportation - LIVE
Discussion Group - Friday, July 17 at 7 pm EDT

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Register for this discussion.

Do you have any access issues with public transportation where you live? Or when visiting other communities?
 
This Discussion Group will be led by CWDO's Chairperson, Terrance Green.  It is intended to brainstorm on current issues respecting what accessible public transportation means from a cross-disability perspective.

The Ontario Human Rights Commission has filed a complaint against the public transportation providers in Thunder Bay, Hamilton and Sudbury to the Human Rights Tribunal Ontario over the fact that transit providers are not calling out stops. Push Northwest, Thunder Bay, are exploring the potential of becoming interveners in the case, respecting persons with disabilities in Thunder Bay, as calling out of stops is a barrier to transportation for persons with various types of disabilities.
 
CWDO wants to bring persons with disabilities from across Ontario together to discuss what is happening in your area regarding public transportation and access.

Join us! Share your concerns, your successes, and your tribulations.
 
Together, we can make a difference, on:
Friday, July 17, at 7 pm EDT in the Members Lounge
