On October 1, 2020, TTC Board members, management and staff, and members of the Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit (ACAT) will host the TTC’s first ever virtual Public Forum on Accessible Transit. This event is held annually to hear from the public about the accessibility of conventional TTC and door-to-door (Wheel-Trans) public transit services in Toronto. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’re hosting this event online this year.
- Thursday, October 1, 2020 – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Participate online – view the live stream
- Participate by phone – 416-764-8658
The Public Forum on Accessible Transit will include captioning and ASL interpreters. You must register for the event, and you can pre-submit any questions you might have online.
TTC staff will share a presentation starting at 7 p.m. highlighting recent accessibility initiatives and plans for the continued improvement of transit in Toronto, including the Wheel-Trans 10-year Strategy, Family of Services, and The Easier Access project initiatives. They will also discuss the TTC’s response to COVID-19. The presentation will be followed by an open question and answer period. Questions may be submitted via the live stream platform, twitter or by phone.
The open Public Forum will provide the opportunity for customers to ask questions, share their experiences, provide feedback, concerns and other comments directly to a panel which will include:
- Kirsten Watson – Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Operations
- Dwayne Geddes, Head of Wheel-Trans
- Mark Mis, Head of Service Planning & Scheduling
- Matt Hagg, Senior Planner, System Access
- Mazin Aribi, 2020 ACAT Chair
Feedback gathered through the virtual event will be used to inform the TTC’s accessibility planning activities. We look forward to sharing our successes and learning about new ways to improve transit for everyone.
