Accessible transportation

Accessibility and the Canadian Transportation Agency

Persons with disabilities have a right to equal access to federal transportation services.

The CTA has a mandate to protect this right. We create regulations, codes of practice and guidelines to ensure accessible transportation, such as the Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (ATPDR) and the new Accessible Transportation Planning and Reporting Regulations (ATPRR).

We also help resolve individual complaints about accessibility through facilitation, mediation or adjudication.
