Hey Cruisers Family!

On behalf of Metrolinx, see the email below:

Volunteers Needed for Metrolinx Accessibility Advisory Committee

Metrolinx is looking for committed individuals to serve on our Accessibility Advisory Committee. This committee plays an important role by providing advice to Metrolinx as it plans, builds and operates an integrated accessible transportation system. If this volunteer opportunity appeals to you, we invite you to apply.

Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario, was created to improve the coordination and integration of all modes of transportation in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Metrolinx is committed to being a leader in accessible transportation, consulting widely and incorporating best practices to enhance accessibility in every aspect of its services.

Metrolinx services include GO Transit, UP Express, and PRESTO. We are responsible for planning of new rapid transit services across the region, working closely with municipalities. Metrolinx also works with transportation partners to improve service coordination in the GTHA.

There are currently up to five open positions on the committee. Priority is given to individuals who have disabilities, seniors and people working in agencies supporting individuals with disabilities. If you have knowledge of and an interest in accessible transportation issues and are committed to making services better for everyone, we would like to hear from you. It would be an advantage if you have experience using GO Transit, UP Express, PRESTO, and other public transportation services. Meetings are usually held on weekday afternoons. Appointments are for a minimum of four years.

If you would like an application form, or if you need further information, please email accessibility@metrolinx.com, or call 416-202-5938.

Applications must be received by Metrolinx no later than July 12, 2019.
