Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS the implementation of exterior bus announcements on all OC Transpo conventional buses was identified as an action item in the City of Ottawa’s 2016-2020 Five-Year Municipal Accessibility Plan, which was approved by City Council on March 23, 2016; and WHEREAS, as previously approved by Council, exterior bus announcements will provide improved and more equitable service to customers who are unable to see the destination sign of an approaching bus, including those who have vision loss or are blind, as well as to all other customers, including visitors, older adults, new Canadians, those with intellectual and learning disabilities, and those who are unable to read, and will assist these individuals to use transit safety and independently; and WHEREAS the implementation of exterior bus announcements consists of an 9- to 13-second audible pre-boarding announcement, broadcast externally from the vehicle, in both official languages of the route and destination when the front doors open at each bus stop; and WHEREAS the volume of the exterior bus announcements will be set only approximately 5 to 9 decibels above the ambient noise levels at the stop, during the day, and will be lowered to about 3 to 5 decibels above ambient from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., during the evening and early morning; and WHEREAS the implementation of exterior bus announcements is consistent with City Council’s strategic priorities of Healthy & Caring Communities and Service Excellence, and with the standards and principles inherent in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, the City of Ottawa’s Accessibility Policy and the City of Ottawa’s Equity and Inclusion Lens; WHEREAS the Noise By-law (2004-253, as amended) specifically prohibits the use of a noise amplification system on a highway, and furthermore does not specifically allow or exempt the repeated broadcast of a message such as that provided to customers in the external bus announcement system approved by Council, thereby requiring an amendment to fully exempt the operation of the exterior bus announcement system; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT that Section 21 of the Noise By-law (By-law No. 2004-253), as amended, be amended to exempt from the Noise By-law the operation of exterior announcements on buses or other authorized vehicles under the jurisdiction and control of OC Transpo, where the announcements notify users of the route and destination, or any other information, in both official languages.
