ILRC, in partnership with the Amalgamated Transit Union, numerous community agencies, and transit users with disabilities, is proud to present 9 Steps: A community based approach, towards accessible public transportation. Changes are on their way to Winnipeg Transit and it is up to the community to ensure that no one is left behind!Archived Posts
On February 5th, 2019 the City of Winnipeg’s Public Works committee voted in favour of eliminating the $12.65 ‘door-to-door’ service fee applied to wheelchair users accessing a local taxicab. Over the past few months we have heard countless complaints of this discriminatory policy being used abusively and fraudulently.
While the issue must ultimately face a vote before the entire city council, it looks like the surcharge will soon become a thing of the past.
Our thanks to the Winnipeg Parking Authority for responding to the concerns of the community and continuing to work in good faith towards a more equitable and accessible local vehicle for hire industry.Archived Posts
