Milton Transit focuses on accessibility for all

With a commitment to providing accessible transit for everybody, Milton Transit is seeking public input that considers all aspects related to using the system. Comments are encouraged beyond mobility challenges, which are commonly associated with accessibility. Feedback is also being sought on all facets of service delivery, such as accessible buses/bus stops/shelters, availability of transit schedules, signage, and the display of service information.

“Whether you ride a bike, travel in a wheelchair or push a stroller, accessibility is a must for all Milton residents when it comes to travelling with Milton Transit,” said Mayor Gord Krantz. “We need residents to express their opinions so we can identify and remove barriers to ensure Milton Transit is accessible for everybody.”

The first input opportunity is a drop-in session on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the lobby at the Milton Sports Centre. A special drop-off bus service will be available after the session. The second session takes place during a public meeting of the Milton Accessibility Advisory Committee on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall (Milton Room). Input can also be provided online at www.miltontransit.ca.

The draft 2017 Milton Transit Accessibility Plan will be available at the input sessions in hard copy format and on the Milton Transit website for feedback until March 1; alternate formats are available, upon request. Comments will be incorporated into the final draft plan to be presented for approval by Committee of the Whole on March 27, 2017.
