Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit
The TTC Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit (ACAT) provides community input into the planning, development and implementation of accessible transit. Its role is to represent the needs and concerns of people with disabilities and seniors who use the TTC. ACAT provides guidance and policy advice to the TTC on issues pertaining to the ways and means of improving conventional (TTC bus, streetcar and subway) and Wheel-Trans services.
ACAT is made up of 15 members on three-year terms. Each year, the Board appoints five new members to the committee who volunteer about seven hours per week during regular business hours. To be considered for membership to ACAT, you must:
