King Street Pilot Project Sparks Accessibility Issues

Less than one week after the start of the King Street Pilot Project, one woman says she’s concerned the new rules are making transportation inaccessible for people who live with a disability.

Vicki Cal has been using Wheel-Trans for the last three years, getting picked up from her east-end home and getting dropped off in front of the Scotia Plaza on King St. between Yonge and Bay. But on Wednesday, she says a parking enforcement officer told her Wheel-Trans driver due to the new pilot rules, Cal would have to wait at one of the designated pick-up areas along King Street.
