Tomorrow, Wed., Oct. 7, Toronto Centre Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam and Mazin Aribi, chair of the TTC's Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit, will join TTC CEO Rick Leary to celebrate Wellesley Station becoming accessible. This is the TTC's 47th accessible station.
Date: Wed., Oct. 7, 2020
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Location: Wellesley Station on Line 1, northwest elevator on bus platform level.
This station will also be receiving an artistic injection featuring a large, curved ceramic tile mosaic based on the colours of subway tiles from Line 1 stations designed by Montreal artist Gisele Amantea. Installation will also take place later this year.
Accessibility improvements such as these support the TTC's Family of Services model, which gives Wheel-Trans customers the option to use accessible conventional transit services, such as buses, the subway and the growing fleet of low-floor streetcars. Family of Services is a part of the Wheel-Trans 10-Year Strategy that aims to reimagine and transform the accessible public transit services that are delivered to customers with disabilities.
The TTC remains committed to full system accessibility by 2025 under its Easier Access Program.
