Metrolinx has facilitated a new paratransit agreement promoting easier and more convenient cross-boundary travel for people who use mobility aids.
The paratransit agreement, which is now in effect, eliminates the need for mobility aid users to undergo multiple eligibility processes when they cross municipal borders.
If you are a mobility aid user registered with a paratransit agency in the municipality you live in, you are now automatically eligible for paratransit services with the following seven other transit agencies as well:
- Burlington Handi-Van
- Durham Region Specialized Services
- Hamilton D.A.R.T.S
- Milton access+
- Oakville care-A-van
- Peel TransHelp
- TTC Wheel-Trans
- York Mobility Plus
Customers can also use paratransit service to get to and from an accessible conventional transit service, like GO Transit, VIVA or Züm.
As the regional transit authority for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), Metrolinx is dedicated to making the services it provides fully accessible to people with disabilities.
