If you need an
ASL sign language interpreter, tell them when you make the appointment. The office can arrange this.
Bring photo identification which shows your name and address. You can bring someone with you if you want — for example to help translate.
You will get a letter about 7 to 10 business days after your interview. If you are approved, you will get a registration card and Wheel-Trans number. You need to use this number every time you book a ride.
If you do not qualify, you can appeal this decision. The letter will explain how to do this. Your health care team might be able to help with this.
The cost of a Wheel-Trans ride is the same as a regular TTC fare. You need to pay the driver using tickets, tokens, a transit pass or cash. If you pay cash, you will need to have the exact fare.
One other person can travel with you from Monday to Friday. More people can go with you on weekends and holidays, if there is space. You can use the service for any kind of trip. Each person pays a fare.
You do not need to be a resident of Toronto to register. However, Wheel-Trans only takes you on trips within Toronto and up to 1 kilometre into York, Peel and Durham regions.
