Metrolinx 2015 Accessibility Public Meetings

TORONTO: October 7, 2015 – Metrolinx is committed to making our services fully accessible to people with disabilities. For the fourth consecutive year, Metrolinx is holding public meetings across the GTHA so our customers can provide feedback on the accessible services provided by Metrolinx’s operating divisions, including GO Transit.

Last year’s meetings were a great success because of the participation of more than 100 attendees. This year, public feedback remains crucial in ensuring the needs of people with disabilities are incorporated into our plans. Metrolinx is inviting media, members of the public and stakeholders to attend a meeting in their area.
