Most disabilities shouldn't stop anyone from traveling. There are more options and resources out there than ever before.
Toronto is a very accessible city. Curb cuts are well made and common throughout the downtown area; special parking privileges are extended to people with disabilities who have special plates or a pass that allows parking in no-parking zones. The subway and trolleys are not accessible, but the city operates Wheel-Trans, a special service for those with disabilities. Visitors can register for this service. For information, call tel. 416/393-4111 or visit http://www3.ttc.ca/TTC_Accessibility/index.jsp.
