TTC hosts annual Public Forum on Accessible Transit tonight

The TTC is hosting its annual Public Forum on Accessible Transit at the Toronto Reference Library tonight.


The forum provides Wheel-Trans customers, stakeholders, advocacy groups, and the broader community, an opportunity to hear updates and provide feedback on important initiatives the TTC is working on to enhance accessibility across the system.


Tonight’s forum will be reinforced with several pop-up consultations throughout the city and an online survey as the TTC builds its 2024-2028 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan.


“We are investing more than ever as a City government toward making the TTC fully accessible for everyone,” said Mayor Olivia Chow. “That means an inclusive, barrier free transit system which allows the dignity of spontaneous travel and equal access for all people. I hope everyone with in interest in accessible transit will share their views and participate in these consultations by the TTC.”


“As TTC Chair and Chair of the Toronto Accessibility Advisory Committee, I recognize and value the diversity of all TTC customers, and I am looking forward to hearing their ideas and feedback this evening and throughout the consultation process,” said TTC Chair Jamaal Myers. “Participation in the forum, and the consultations, are crucial in making the TTC a better, more equitable, and accessible transit system for everyone.”


“We at the TTC recognize the importance of building an accessible transit system for everyone, which is why our entire streetcar, bus and subway fleets are now accessible,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “All suggestions, concerns and ideas shared through this consultation process will help in our effort to create a barrier-free transit system.” 


Participants at tonight’s Public Forum on Accessible Transit will receive updates from staff on recent accessibility initiatives, including the Wheel-Trans 10-year Strategy, Family of Services, and Easier Access project and plans for the continued improvement of transit in Toronto.


Customers will also have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on their experiences of using the TTC.
