New Priority and Courtesy Seating on Milton Transit

Posted on Wednesday October 17, 2012

Priority and Courtesy Seating decals will be installed inside all Milton Transit buses this week, in compliance with Section 49 of the Integrated Accessibility Standards (IAS, Ontario Regulation 191-11) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).

A section at the front of Milton Transit buses will be clearly marked with the new window decals to indicate Priority and Courtesy Seating areas.

The Priority Seating area is dedicated to passengers with disabilities.

Passengers, other than those with disabilities, must vacate the marked seating area if it is required by a person with a disability.

Marked Courtesy Seating areas have also been established, and are dedicated for those who may require a seat, including:

seniors, expectant mothers, adults travelling with infants or small children, and any other passenger who may benefit from a seat.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) requires businesses and organizations to provide accessible services to people with disabilities.

The Province has committed to a fully accessible Ontario by 2025.

The Integrated Accessibility Standards (IAS, Ontario Regulation 191-11), is a regulation developed under the AODA which includes several standards related to transportation, employment, and information and communications. Compliance dates for each standard have been established in the IAS.
