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 has launched an online survey that will remain open from Wednesday, January 24, 2018 until midnight on Friday February 16, 2018.

 

 

Registration for the Vehicle-for-Hire Accessibility Fund consultation session of Tuesday January 30, 2018 is now closed, however registration for the session on Friday February 16, 2018 has been extended and will remain open until Friday February 2, 2018 at 4:30 pm. Please note that advance registration is required as space is limited. Please register as soon as possible.

 

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.
