HandyDART service hours have been frozen since 2009, and as a result trip denials went up over 600% before the contractor changed procedures to disguise the crisis. Service quality has also deteriorated, with riders routinely forced to wait for hours.

The Mayors’ Plan includes a 30% increase in HandyDART service hours over 10 years, or about 2.7% per year. This is an important step forward, although considerably more is needed after a 5-year freeze and given our rapidly aging population.

It is time to make major investments in public transit, including HandyDART, to make Metro Vancouver a livable and age friendly region. Please Vote YES!
