The Government of Canada is looking at how to make trains, planes and long-haul bus routes more accessible through the new "Accessible Canada Act". Canada Transport Agency created regulations with the new act and are asking for feedback.
Here are our ideas on how we think we can improve the rules to ensure travellers regardless of mobility have a good travelling experience.
Our six areas include: timely reports in plain language, including transport operators of less than ten employees, national training standards, create a federal operational fund, a 24/7 accessible hotline, connect communities using a transport Canada database on best practices for free.
For a detailed look at what we mean, feel free to download the report.
