London Transit’s specialized transit service is a shared ride, door-to-door service designed to meet the needs of the citizens of London who have a disability that prevents them, on a regular basis, from being able to use London’s conventional transit service.
Trips are not guaranteed and the service is operated in accordance with policy and procedures as reviewed and amended from time to time.
See our Accessibility page for the Commission’s commitment and AODA requirements.
