Starting today, persons with disabilities have new protections under the Canadian Transportation Agency’s (CTA) Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (ATPDR).

The ATPDR require transportation service providers to:

  • ensure that aircraft, trains, ferries, buses and terminals (such as airports) are accessible by complying with specific technical requirements;
  • meet communication needs of travellers with disabilities;
  • provide accessible services; and
  • make border and security screening more accessible.
