Metrolinx and OPTA launch passenger accessibility campaign

Metrolinx has announced that it is joining forces with the Ontario Public Transit Association (OPTA) to raise awareness around accessibility on transit. Through the EnAbling Change campaign – which launched across GO Transit and UP Express services on 21 March 2022 – OPTA and transit agency partners across the province are raising awareness of transit accessibility features, encouraging customers to consider the needs of others and promoting compliance with Ontario’s accessibility standards.

The campaign is driven by the transit agency’s firm belief that public transit is for everyone and that getting around via GO Transit or UP Express should be equitable for people of all needs – including those travelling with a cane, support animal or even without any assistance.
