GRT rolls out reminder stickers on priority seating for National AccessAbility Week

By CityNews Kitchener Staff

You might notice something new on buses and ION trains in Waterloo Region over the next few days.

Grand River Transit (GRT) is rolling out some reminders on priority seating as part of National AccessAbility week.

Priority seats on public transit now have new stickers that say, “This is a priority seat. Offer this seat to those who need it.”

The seats are situated near the front entrances and are always marked with permanent blue decals.

The new stickers are shaped like hearts and serve as a gentle reminder about their purpose.

“The vast majority of transit customers share the space and vacate the space, when needed, if someone with a disability needs to sit in the priority seating area,” said Neil Malcolm, acting director of transit services with the Region of Waterloo.

Malcolm added that not all disabilities are visible and it’s important for riders to be respectful and vacate a priority seat if someone requests it.
