Accessibility

Accessibility is important, for everyone. Milton Transit fully supports and endorses the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) with the goal to achieve universal accessibility by 2025. Businesses and organizations that provide goods and services to people in Ontario are required to meet accessibility standards within the timelines stated in the Act.

The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR, 191-11) is the legislated standard developed under the AODA. The IASR identifies requirements and compliance dates for standards related to information and communications, employment, built environment and transportation. For more information about the Town's role in accessibility, visit the Town of Milton's Accessibility page.

Priority and Courtesy Seating Areas

In compliance with Section 49 of the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR 191-11), Milton Transit has established designated Priority Seating areas for use by passengers with disabilities.

Passengers other than those with a disability must vacate the marked seating area if required by a person with a disability.

Recognizing that there may be other customers who could benefit from having a seat near the front of the bus, a Courtesy Seating area has also been established.

The Courtesy Seating area is designated for seniors, expectant mothers, adults travelling with infants or small children, and any other passenger who may benefit from a seat near the front of the bus.
