TTC partners with MagnusCards to make taking transit more accessible

The TTC has partnered with Magnusmode for a new digital initiative that will make taking transit in Toronto easier for neurodiverse communities.MagnusCards™ by Magnusmode is a digital life skills app with guides to help autistic and neurodiverse persons perform everyday activities. The TTC has partnered with Magnusmode to develop five TTC MagnusCards decks, each of which focus on a different aspect of using transit. The app uses visual cues, step-by-step instructions and optional audio, to guide users through activities and tasks that may be unfamiliar to them.

The app is free to download in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. The TTC MagnusCards are located within the ‘Travel’ section of the MagnusCards App, identified by an aeroplane icon. Persons can visit for more information.
