Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations

Phase II – Consultation on the Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (ATPDR)

The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) is launching new consultations on key accessibility-related issues. This consultation process will focus on:

  • How to apply ATPDR provisions to small transportation providers – with adjustments to reflect their unique operating realities; 
  • Whether or not to apply the One Person, One Fare (1p1f) requirement to international travel and to small transportation providers;
  • What, if anything, to require of transportation providers with respect to Emotional Support Animals and service animals other than dogs; and
  • Planning and reporting frameworks for transportation providers, pursuant to the Accessible Canada Act, which came into force on July 11, 2019.
