Easier access on the TTC
Making the TTC the easier way
For getting around Toronto, the better way is becoming the easier way for seniors and persons with disabilities. The Toronto Transit Commission is committed to improving access to the conventional system for all its customers.
The TTC has made huge strides over the past decade to make public transit more accessible for everyone. The TTC’s bus fleet is entirely wheelchair and scooter friendly, as are all 170 bus routes. Looking ahead to the TTC’s streetcars of the future, those too will be low-floor and accessible.
Today, more than 60 per cent of the train fleet is fully accessible, and nearly half of all Subway/RT stations are wheelchair and scooter friendly. Delivery of the TTC’s next generation of accessible subway trains – the Toronto Rockets – continue to make subway service even more accessible.
The TTC is also poised to bring the very best light rail vehicles (LRVs) to the city. The TTC is acquiring hundreds of new, low-floor LRVs for the existing streetcar network. They start entering service in 2014, and will all be accessible with no internal steps, larger, air-conditioned and more comfortable.
The TTC recognizes and values the diversity of its customers by showing everyone the respect and dignity they deserve.
The TTC is everyone’s transit system. We hope you enjoy your ride on the better way!
