The maximum weight limit of the ECV is 350lbs. or 400lbs. depending on availability of units. To reserve an ECV please select a date and complete your reservation details.

Please be advised that there are steep grades on the site and some of the gradual grades do not meet current accessibility standards. In particular, access to the Canadian Domain is via a steep hill and is not recommended for guests in wheelchair or use of electric scooters. The Zoo evaluates the accessibility of our buildings and grounds on an on-going basis to improve the experience for all our guests.

Program participants receive Access2 wallet cards which allow simple identification, removing the onus to explain their need for an attendant. While you do not need to be a subscriber to the Access2 program to receive the People With Disability (PWD) admission package, upon presentation of Access2 card or self-declaration of disability with Guest Services staff, cardholder or person with disability receives 50% admission discount while their support worker receives complimentary admission.

In addition to the Toronto Zoo the Access 2 card is accepted at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Casa Loma, the CN Tower, Ontario Place, the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, as well as Cineplex Entertainment, Empire Theatres and Landmark Cinemas.
