Just a friendly reminder about this upcoming event:
Once again, Metrolinx will be hosting its annual series of public meetings across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area about accessibility.
They want to hear from members of the public about the accessibility of GO Transit, PRESTO, UP Express, and their new and upcoming Rapid Transit services and projects.
Thursday, November 3, 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
55 John Street, Toronto
Rooms 308 & 309 (third floor)
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 accessibility initiatives through round table sessions; and
- 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.
To help them prepare for the meetings, they are asking anyone who is interested in attending to register in advance, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 1-888-438-6646 or 1-800-387-3652 (TTY teletypewriters only). As part of the registration, they ask that participants please identify which meeting they plan to attend, what accommodations they may require (if any) to participate fully in the meeting, and which two topic areas you are most interested in discussing at the meeting (GO Transit, PRESTO, UP Express, Light Rail Transit/Bus Rapid Transit, municipal transit).
