Metrolinx public meetings on accessibility:
October 20, 27, November 4, 18



Metrolinx wants you to share your ideas on how Metrolinx and its divisions — GO Transit, PRESTO and Union Pearson Express — can make it easier for people with disabilities to travel around the region.

It’s hosting four public meetings to find out what you think:

Meetings take place throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area:

  • Central — in downtown Toronto;
  • East — in Durham Region; and
  • West — in downtown Hamilton.

It’s also hosting a teleconference, where anyone can participate by telephone, from anywhere in the GTHA.

Metrolinx will supply American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, real-time captioning and attendant care at each of the in-person meetings.
