What is the Transportation Standard?

Transportation is one of the five standards within the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act's (AODA) Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR). The goal of this Standard is to make it easier for everyone to travel in Ontario.

The Transportation Standard applies only to organizations and agencies providing transportation services such as public transit, taxicabs and school boards, hospitals and universities who provide such services (e.g. shuttle buses).


AODA Standards are reviewed individually every five years. The final proposed recommendations for the Transportation Standard were presented to Minister responsible for Accessibility, Tracey MacCharles, in January, 2018. When academic library-related amendments come into effect they will be posted on this website.
