Transportation Services

Under Transportation services, we are working on these issues:

  1. Availability of Accessible Transit. Ensuring that everyone, wherever they live in Ontario, has access to accessible transportation on par with their municipal transportation system (e.g., hours of operation; availability of transit)

  2. Peer Support to share ideas about making your local transit work for you.
