Open Consultations Regarding Accessible Transportation in Ottawa

handicap

The City of Ottawa is inviting all members of the public to provide their feedback on how City Council can use accessibility funds collected from Private Transportation Companies, including Uber, to promote and foster accessible transportation services in Ottawa.

 

The City will be hosting public meetings in January and February, and launching an online survey that will remain open from Wednesday, January 24, 2018 until midnight on Friday February 16, 2018. A link to the survey will be posted on Ottawa.ca once it is available.

 

As a member of the Accessibility Advisory Committee, I highly encourage all residents to get involved in this important discussion. Accessibility is a valuable resource that affects all of us; by ensuring that transportation within Ottawa remains accessible to all, we can help to bring our communities closer together and build a stronger society with fewer obstacles.

 

Advanced registration is required to participate in the consultations sessions to ensure appropriate space and allow time to arrange for accommodation requests. The registration process is now open and will close on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 4:30 pm. Please note that space is limited. Visit Ottawa.ca for more information.
