Accessibility for All

Everyone should be able to enjoy public spaces and get around the city with dignity.

We need to retrofit existing infrastructure and design new city infrastructure to make it accessible for everyone.

We can do this by:

  • Making public washrooms accessible and available to everyone, year-round. Washrooms can be beautiful and should be part of all new public spaces
  • Guaranteeing that pedestrian infrastructure is accessible to everyone, including people who use canes, walkers, wheelchairs and other mobility devices. 
  • Improving accessibility through the use of tactile plates and curbless transitions at intersections and the ability to cross the street without the use of a “beg button”
  • Ensuring that sidewalks are wide enough to allow someone in a wheelchair to roll past a stroller, or to ensure that a transit vehicle can deploy its ramp onto the sidewalk while leaving space for a wheelchair user to roll off and turn safely.
