OC Transpo offers several travel aids and tools
to assist customers with disabilities.
Bus Hailing Kits
A bus hailing kit is a pocket-sized set of numbered cards that you can use to identify the route you want to board, to approaching bus operators. Large-text and Braille numbers are printed on the cards. The numbers should be held up at shoulder height.
Bus Hailing Kits are available free of charge, from either:
- CNIB’s Technical Aids Centre at 613-563-4021
OC Transpo Accessible Transit Specialist at 613-842-3636, ext 52873
(TTY: 613-741-5280) or email@example.com
Use a Destination Card to identify the bus stop where you want to get off. Hand the card to the bus operator when you board - the operator will let you know when you arrive at your stop.
Destination cards are available free of charge, from either:
- OC Transpo Customer Service Centres
- OC Transpo Accessible Transit Specialist at 613-842-3636, ext 52873 or firstname.lastname@example.org
