Easter Seals Canada – Disability Travel Card

Easter Seals Canada and its members and/or affiliates are authorized to approve reduced fare tickets allowing persons with permanent disabilities to travel with an attendant* on the lines of Motor Coach Companies that participate in the reduced fare plan, and Via Rail. The Disability Travel Card™ provides identification to a person with a permanent disability, which will allow an adult attendant, travelling with the person with a disability, to travel at no cost. Reduced fares will be granted to the person with a permanent disability, unable to travel alone, (regardless of age) and accompanied by an adult attendant, if such person with a disability has received authorization from Easter Seals Canada or one of its designated affiliated members. Only persons with a permanent disability who require a support person when traveling can apply for the card. The applicant must agree to follow the Terms and Conditions for use of the card. * An attendant is an individual who accompanies a person with a permanent disability who cannot travel independently. An attendant will provide that person with required services that are not normally provided by a vehicle operator. These services include assisting the person with eating, administering medication and using the facilities in an on-board washroom or a washroom at a stop.
