Metrolinx is inviting you to participate in their 2015 Accessibility Public Meetings that will take place across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
They want to hear from you about the accessibility of GO Transit, PRESTO, UP Express, and our upcoming Rapid Transit services and projects to help identify improvements to the accessibility of their services.
At each in-person meeting, participants will have an opportunity to:
- Learn about past, current and future accessibility activities at Metrolinx and its operating divisions and business units.
- Discuss and provide input to our accessibility initiatives through round table sessions.
- Interact directly with Metrolinx staff involved with accessibility projects.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, real-time captioning and attendant services will be provided at the in-person meetings. Alternative formats and other accommodations will be made available upon request.
New this year is a teleconference, which will provide an opportunity for some people who might not be able to make it to an in-person meeting to share their ideas and speak with Metrolinx staff. For the teleconference, participants are asked to submit questions and comments in advance, and then staff will respond to those during the call.
