Removing communication barriers for travellers with disabilities : code of practice.: TT4-4/2016E-PDF

This Code contains accessibility standards developed to improve the communication of transportation-related information for persons with disabilities on a systemic basis as they use the federal transportation network. While this Code focuses on the information needs of persons with disabilities while they travel, the provisions contained in the Code will benefit most travellers. The Agency emphasizes that this Code presents minimum standards that those subject to the Code are expected to meet and urges them to strive to exceed these standards wherever possible. The Agency also encourages those subject to the Code to consult with persons with disabilities or disability associations when purchasing or testing new equipment and when developing policies and procedures related to the communication of information.
