Accessible Transportation - MobilityPLUS

Accessible buses

Grand River Transit's fleet of buses are all accessible, low-floor buses. This enables passengers who have difficulty stepping on a bus to board more easily. Our buses also have a ramp so passengers with mobility devices -- such as a cane, walker, wheelchair or small scooter -- can board the bus on a gentle incline.

Priority seating is available on all buses for the use of passengers with a disability. These seats are located close to the entrance door of the vehicle and clearly marked with the Priority Seating decal.

For more information on accessible buses, visit the Grand River Transit website.

ION light rail

All ION trains are fully accessible. Riders with mobility devices and service animals should board through the two middle doors.

Priority seating is located by the double doors, and marked with a blue priority seating decal. One area has a pair of padded back rests, the other has a pair of seats that flip down. 

If you need more time when exiting the train, press the blue "Accessible stop request" button in the middle of the priority seating area. The doors will remain open longer so you can exit the train safely.
