CTA launches new resource

The Canadian Transportation Agency has launched its new Carriage of Mobility Aids Resource Tool for air, rail and inter-provincial ferry carriers to assist travellers, travel agents and transportation service providers in the planning of and preparation for travel involving mobility aids. Over the last decade, there has been a marked increase in the frequency of use and in the size of some types of mobility aids. Carriage of mobility aids is an essential part of any mobility aid user’s travel, and requires extra planning and preparation. The CTA’s Resource Tool combines new information to assist travellers, travel agents and transportation service providers alike. In addition, it introduces a new reservation checklist that can facilitate the planning of carriage of mobility aids. Geoff Hare, chair and CEO of the CTA said: “Safe, efficient and consistent carriage of mobility aids has always been important. This one-stop-shop resource will enhance mobility aids users’ awareness when planning travel, while assisting service providers in improving passenger travel experience.” The Resource Tool can be accessed in multiple formats through the Canadian Transportation Agency’s web site — http://www.otc-cta.gc.ca/eng/publication/carriage-mobility-aids-planes-trains-ferries .
