Discontinuation of Three Stair Practice:

For your safety and the safety of our drivers, effective January 01, 2019 Handi-Transit drivers will no longer maneuver an occupied manual wheelchair up or down steps at a registrant’s pick-up or drop off locations.

This is an unsafe practice that places both the driver and registrant at risk of significant injury. An independent assessment of the practice was done in 2017 and found that maneuvering an occupied wheelchair up or down stairs posed a significant safety risk to both the drivers and passengers. Existing registrants who are currently provided this service will need to make alternate arrangements to meet the drivers at the bottom of the stairs.
