Taxicab Accessibility in Sault Ste. Marie

Campaigns - Thu, 11/27/2014 - 5:37pm

Everyone – including people with disabilities, seniors, and families – deserves equitable access to taxicabs Sault Ste. Marie. In truth, we are perplexed that our City’s taxi owners do not share this view and are surprised by the resistance of taxi owners to add accessible taxis to their fleet.

In the debate around whether the Sault Ste. Marie’s taxi fleet should include accessible taxis, we don’t want to pit passenger against passenger. Our plan continues to evolve as we strive to provide solutions by working with the City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Police Services Board.
