Conventional Accessible Service
All of the buses operated by Durham Region Transit (DRT) are accessible. Accessible buses are equipped with extendable ramp/lift, kneeling feature at front doors, and reserved wheelchair/scooter areas. Riders must be able to safely maneuver their mobility device.
Passengers requiring care when travelling are requested to travel with a support person. Under certain conditions, a support person is permitted to travel with a passenger requiring assistance, covered under the same fare.
