Accessible Transit Now!

Disabled People across the Province and the whole territories of so-called Canada need—from accessible design to fare-free entry—accessible transit. From your local transit and paratransit authorities to Metrolinx to national bus, train, and other services, Disabled People can only be free to “be” if they can get where they need to be.

The City of Hamilton is suspending two vital programs for disabled people and Ontario Works recipients. The programs that are set to be suspended are: the Affordable Transit Pass for Ontario Works Recipients and the Temporary Transit Fare Special Program for persons who use a personal mobility device (PMD), such as a wheelchair, scooter, walker, and CNIB cardholders. The City’s plan is to suspend both programs by June 30th. They have already launched the new Fare Assist pilot that will be replacing these programs.
