In addition to public transportation options, taxis play an essential part of the transportation system in Sarnia by providing door-to-door service, 24-hours a day, and seven days a week. As part of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Standards (AODA) O. Reg. 191/11, s. 79, the City of Sarnia is mandated to consult with the Sarnia Accessibility Advisory Committee (SAAC), people with disabilities, and the public to determine the proportion of accessible on-demand taxis and to develop a plan on how to address gaps and meet the needs of the community.

The City of Sarnia and SAAC will be conducting focus groups on:

  • Tuesday, December 3 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Strangway Centre
  • Thursday, December 5 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in Committee Room #2 at City Hall
  • Tuesday, December 10 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Sarnia Arena

The information gathered from the focus groups will be used in developing a municipal plan for on-demand accessible taxi services in the community. Other focus groups and interviews may be added depending on community need.
