TransLink is launching a series of online tools designed to help make transit accessible for people of all abilities.
“This bus tool provides a detailed visual layout of everything that you would encounter when you board a bus,” says AutismBC program ambassador Jake Anthony. “We believe this tool will be helpful for individuals on the autism spectrum who might get anxious not knowing what a new experience will be like. Going over this tool before a bus trip should help individuals of all diverse abilities throughout Metro Vancouver feel more secure, confident and safe.”
