Paradise to talk accessible transit

·1 min read

The Town of Paradise is looking for input from residents who might avail of an accessible transit system.

Councillor Sterling Willis noted it is something that residents have been requesting.

“We are now developing an accessible transit policy project… as a part of developing this pilot project, the Town will be hosting a focus group to seek input from potential users,” said Willis during Tuesday’s public council meeting.

Participants in an upcoming focus group will be limited to Paradise residents who have disabilities or who have family members living in Paradise who have disabilities.

The focus group, held over Zoom, will be held on December 10, with a real time ASL translator present.

Those interested are asked to contact the Town by December 2.

Though Metrobus offers some wheelchair accessible routes, the one Metrobus route which passes through Paradise is not accessible.
