NOTICE DATE CHANGE – Universal Accessibility Study (Halifax)

Universal Accessibility Study –
2nd set of Public Consultation Sessions

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.

St. Andrews Community Centre
6955 Bayers Rd., Halifax
