The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) improved accessibility to
six more of its bus routes, bringing the total number of routes that are
wheelchair and scooter friendly to 126 of its 167 routes.
The new routes will be served by accessible, kneeling buses
equipped with a flip-ramp or lift. These buses can be identified by blue lights
on either side of the front destination sign, and the blue international
wheelchair symbol displayed above the front right bumper next to the entrance
All fully accessible buses include two wheelchair/scooter
positions. The TTC now has more than 1,300 accessible buses in its fleet, with
more on the way. The buses are being purchased with the financial assistance of
the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario.
