Garnering support of this important issue in any and every way possible. Thank you for copying and pasting to your connections.

Dear Para Transpo riders and friends,
Please share your experiences with booking and riding the service and include the hashtag #ParaParity
We are fighting for equity with the Para Transpo service as well as accessible transportation with the O-Train which has 4 spots per car (8 per train) for people who use wheelchairs AND parents with strollers, while they have 160 seats or 200 standing room. This means 2% of the car is going to be allotted to much more than 10% of the population.

It is long past due that the service got an upgrade, and if City Council says 10% of the Ottawa population isn’t worth 4% of the $2.1 billion that the O-Train costs... then it is time to speak up, speak out, and speak against these issues!
