During the month of November, Metrolinx will be hosting the Accessibility Public Meetings. These meetings are similar to the TTC Accessible Forum back in September, allowing you to share your ideas on how Metrolinx and its operating divisions, GO Transit, PRESTO and Union Pearson Express, can make it easier for people with disabilities to travel around our region.

The last Metrolinx Accessibility Public Meeting was held in 2012, and the feedback from the public and Metrolinx responses can be viewed here under Appendix A. The topics covered ranges from the general design of the stations to the visibility and audibility of information.

We will be there covering the meetings. If you have any questions you would like us to bring up, leave a comment below!
