Show you care. Offer your seat to someone who needs it more than you. Please read and respect the signs.
In compliance with Section 49 of Regulation 191-11, Ontario’s public transit authorities now provide priority seating designated for use by passengers with disabilities.
Transit authorities recognize there are other customers who would benefit from having a seat near the front of the bus. A courtesy seating area has been designated for seniors, expectant mothers, adults travelling with infants/small children or any other customer who may benefit from a seat near the front of the bus.
Priority seating is for the use of passengers with a disability. These seats are located close to the front of the vehicle. Customers are expected to respect and obey the purpose of the designated seating area, which means:
If you are sitting in one of these designated seats, you MUST vacate the seat for a passenger with a disability.
Please note the following:
- A person with a disability occupying a priority seat is not required to move for another customer with a disability. Use of these seats is on a first-come, first-served basis.
- You are not expected to leave a transit vehicle in order to make room for a customer with a disability.
- Bus drivers/operators will not intervene to enforce the requirement; however, we ask that you show consideration for those with a greater need than your own.
Courtesy seating is intended to provide additional seating for people who benefit from having a seat near the front of the vehicle including:
- expectant mothers
- adults travelling with infants or small children
- any other passenger who may benefit from a seat
If you are sitting in one of these designated seats, please respect its purpose and give up your seat to those who need it.
