Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor, Transportation Editor TORONTO, ON--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 23, 2006) - The TTC is pleased to introduce four more accessible bus routes to its group of surface routes. Starting on Sunday, November 26, the 61 AVENUE RD, 96 WILSON, 165 WESTON RD NORTH and 319 WILSON bus routes will be wheelchair and scooter friendly.

Of the TTC's 166 bus routes, 91 are now accessible.

The four routes will be served by kneeling buses equipped with a flip-ramp or lift. These buses can be identified by blue lights on either side of the front destination sign, and the blue international wheelchair symbol displayed on the front right bumper next to the entrance door.

All fully accessible buses include two wheelchair/scooter positions. The TTC has more than 900 accessible buses in its fleet - and more are coming!
