Metrolinx has joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower program!
By joining the Sunflower program, Metrolinx is supporting customers living with hidden disabilities by providing a tool that allows customers to identify their needs without disclosing a particular condition.
Customers can choose to wear a Sunflower pin as a subtle way of letting staff know that they have an invisible disability and may require additional support, assistance, or a bit more time.
Metrolinx is the first public transit agency in North America to adopt the program. Sunflower program participants traveling on UP Express will experience a seamless journey to and from the airport as Toronto Pearson is also a partner of the Sunflower program. Additionally, this initiative is popular with transit operators in the UK like Transport for London, Heathrow Airport and Network Rail.
Metrolinx is happy to offer Sunflower pins free of charge. Sunflower pins can be picked up at Union Station by asking a staff member or by emailing [email protected] to have a pin mailed to your home free of charge.
If you have a Sunflower pin or lanyard from another organization, such as Pearson Airport, you are also welcomed to wear those Sunflower products.
