TTC Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit

Application for 2021 Membership

The Toronto Transit Commission has established the Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit (ACAT) to facilitate community input into the planning, development and implementation of accessible transit.

The Advisory Committee reports directly to the Board of the TTC. Working collaboratively with TTC staff, its role is to represent the needs and concerns of people with disabilities and seniors who use the TTC as well as to provide guidance and policy advice on issues pertaining to improving accessible transit, e.g. TTC bus, subway, streetcar and door-to-door Wheel-Trans services.

ACAT is comprised of fifteen (15) volunteer members. Positions on the committee are open to residents of the City of Toronto who have disabilities, are seniors, or represent the needs and concerns of seniors and persons with disabilities. You should currently use the TTC and have an interest in and knowledge of accessible transit matters. Applicants must be willing to make a commitment of a minimum 10-15 hours per month, to attend meetings* normally held during regular business hours.

*Please note that meetings may be held online using a virtual platform that also permits members to join by telephone (e.g. WebEx). Meetings will be held online for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications must be received before 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, 2020.
