Scope The standard applies to: Conventional transportation services, for example, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Specialized transportation services, for example, TTC & trades Wheel-Trans Municipalities with specific requirements for those that license taxicabs or provide conventional transportation services Certain ferries and other transportation services Public school boards that provide transportation services Hospitals, colleges and universities who provide transportation services (for example, shuttle buses) Requirments Requirements of the Transportation Standard include: Providing clearly marked courtesy seating for people with disabilities Not   charging   people   with   disabilities   a   higher   fare   than   people   without   disabilities,   and   not   charging   for   storing   mobility   aids   or mobility assistive devices, such as wheelchairs or walkers Technical requirements for lifting devices, steps, grab bars/handrails, floor surfaces, lighting, signage, etc. Providing verbal and visual announcements of routes and stops on vehicles Developing an eligibility application process including an independent appeal process Charging   fares   that   are   no   higher   than   the   fares   charged   for   conventional   transit   where   they   are   both   operated   by   the   same service provider Providing   the   same   hours   and   days   of   service   as   those   offered   by   conventional   transit   where   they   are   both   operated   by   the   same service provider Municipalities   that   licence   taxicabs   must   ensure   that   owners   and   operators   of   taxicabs   do   not   charge   higher   fares   or   additional   fees   to a passenger with a disability.
