With an aging population, the Region is aware of the increasing need to provide transportation for persons with disabilities. As part of the Region's Long Range Transportation Planning initiative,we have undertaken a study to examine the unique transportation needs of each disability group included in the Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
The goals of the Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Study are:
The study will estimate the proportion of travel needs including accessible fixed-route transit, specialized transit or para-transit, voluntary sector and private modes including taxis. Based on the demand, the study will also recommend options for future coordination, funding and cost effective delivery of the various modes of transportation that will be supported by the Region.
The study report was completed in April 2004.
