http://www.halifax.ca/metrotransit/ALF.html#otherroute

(Note..be sure to read myarticle about the first set of public consultation sessions. Entitled “Halifax Metro Transit Offends and Insults the Disabled”

Metro Transit and IBI Group will conduct four additional Public Consultation Sessions as a follow up to the initial Universal Accessibility Study information meetings, which were held in early March 2011.

Metro Transit is looking for customer input regarding recommendations to a number of accessibility-related issues around conventional bus service, including existing infrastructure (vehicles, terminals, bus stops, shelters, etc.), on-board wheelchair/scooter restraint systems, customer communication and information (website, schedules, & maps), as well as transit guidelines and policies.

Once completed, short and long-term accessibility improvement recommendations to the fixed route transit service will be developed and presented to Regional Council for review/approval in spring/summer 2011.
