Taxis lined up on a street

Just over one month ago, municipalities in Manitoba became responsible for establishing and enforcing regulation for the vehicle for hire (taxi) industry operating within their jurisdiction.

This major shift in responsibility, as well as the entry of new Uber-like services in the marketplace, will create new accessibility challenges and opportunities that will have significant impact on Manitobans with disabilities. It is expected that Winnipeg will see the greatest changes.

Barrier-Free Manitoba, along with the Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities and the City of Winnipeg, is co-sponsoring a FREE public information session on how Winnipeg's new regulations are expected to affect the availability of accessible taxis, now and into the future.

5 to 7 pm
Monday, April 23, 2018
Carol Shields Auditorium (2nd floor), Millennium Library, 251 Donald

The information session will feature a presentation followed by a period for questions and answers.

ASL interpretation and computer note taking accommodations have been arranged. If you plans to attend and require any other accommodations to support your participation, please email or call 204-986-4243 by April 16.
