Robert Q Accessible Customer Service Plan
Robert Q Airbus and Travel is committed to excellence in servicing all customers including people with disabilities.
We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods and services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in a manner that takes into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on all the public areas of our premises and in our vehicles that are open to the public . Service animals are not allowed in the service bays (garage) area of the Robert Q building.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises and in our vehicles.
50% of the full adult fare will be charged to the support person on the Robert Q Airbus for assisting a passenger who is deemed not to be self-reliant. A self-reliant passenger is self-sufficient and capable of taking care of all his or her needs during the ride, including receiving, understanding and acting upon safety instructions, and requires no special or unusual attention beyond that afforded to other passengers, except that assistance entering or exiting the vehicle may be required.
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption of services or facilities for customers with disabilities, washrooms, or automatic entry doors to and from the premises, Robert Q Airbus and Travel will notify customers promptly. This clearly posted notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
The notice will be placed at all entrances and on our web site.
