More Accessible Bus Routes On The Way

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, Photo Editor, Transportation Editor TORONTO, ON--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 5, 2007) - The TTC is pleased to introduce two more accessible bus routes to its group of surface routes. Starting on Sunday, January 7, the 14 GLENCAIRN and 125 DREWRY bus routes will be wheelchair and scooter friendly.

Of the TTC's 166 bus routes, 93 are now accessible.

The two 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 above the right front bumper next to the entrance door.

All fully accessible buses include two wheelchair/scooter positions. The TTC has more than 950 accessible buses in its fleet - and more are coming!

TTC customers can call 416 393-INFO (4636) or visit www.ttc.ca for more service information and for a complete accessible route listing.
