  Seniors and those with mobility and health concerns will
  find it easier to do business at Sydney's Registry of Motor
  Vehicles -- thanks to an improved customer service counter
  located on the ground floor of the Provincial Building,
  Prince Street.
  Recent necessary renovations by the Department of Supply and
  Services enabled the establishment of the new counter
  service at minimal cost.
  While the general public will continue to use the second
  floor service centre, beginning Friday, Jan. 19, those
  requiring more accessible service will not have to climb
  stairs and will be able to sit in a new waiting area while
  their transactions are being processed.
  A wheelchair ramp and an elevator remain in service and
  designated parking is also available.
  "The service level wasn't satisfactory for all members of
  the public, given that there are 30 or more steps to the
  second floor service centre. With this new customer service
  initiative, people should find it more convenient and
  comfortable to do business at the Sydney office," said
  Transportation and Communications Minister Richie Mann, who
  will be attend the opening ceremony of the facility at 2
  p.m. Friday.
  The second floor service centre will continue to operate
  during normal business hours, Monday and Tuesday from 8:30
  a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday through Friday from 8:30
  a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The new first floor service centre will be
  open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
