City not compliant on transit access

Judi Mansfield-Jones, Hamilton

On Wednesday, my daughter Kristin and I presented a petition to City Hall on behalf of the Developmental Services Transportation Committee. The petition supports equal access to DARTS for all disabled adults.

In 2008, council passed a motion to revise the eligibility criteria for DARTS to comply with Human Rights and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act regulations for implementing a fair and equitable transportation system for all Hamiltonians. To date, access to DARTS remains restricted and not available to all disabled adults.
