Accessibility

If the TTC isn't working for some of us, it's not working for all of us. Here are our recommendations to make moving across the city accessible.

Create PRESTO machines and tap areas that are accessible to all.

Make the PRESTO upload website AODA compliant to accommodate text to speech and other accessibility platforms.

Ensure that by 2018 all subway platforms are accessible and not reliant on stairs or strenuous activity.

Create opportunities and conduct outreach to ensure at least two youth members on the Accessibility committee of the TTC board to represent youth with disabilities.

Enforce a new rule that ensures all short-term TTC line closures are advertised and informed using digital and traditional avenues at least two weeks ahead of occurrence.
