Durham Region Transit's Accessibility Spotlight 

Stay tuned for our monthly Accessibility Campaign, which will highlight all the accessible features of our transit service! 

March 2024 

Did you know? Ahead of the January 2025 deadline, Durham Region Transit (DRT) is working hard to ensure transit stops are accessible in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). Currently, our accessible stops have a concrete pad, which provides sufficient space for persons using mobility aids (e.g., wheelchair), making it easier to board our fully accessible buses using the folding ramp. Many of our stops are also equipped with a shelter, providing a safe space with both seating and standing room, for those with and without mobility devices. We aim to install shelters at all DRT stops with 20 daily boardings per day or more.
